"Democrats in disarray over expiring tax cuts"

Democrats aren't going to let Republicans in the House vote on an extension for everyone, but it isn't clear that the Democrats have the votes to do anything else.

"A lot of our guys, the progressives, don't want to extend these tax cuts for anyone," said a senior House Democratic aide. "They never liked them in the first place." . . .

"There is a reality here that while it might be best to continue the middle-class tax cuts and raise taxes on higher income people, the votes are not there to do that," said Senator Joe Lieberman, an independent who normally votes with the Democrats. . . .
