"The House has already passed legislation to stop all of the January 1 tax rate increases and replace the sequester with responsible spending cuts that will begin to address our nation's crippling debt." (Press Release, Speaker Boehner, Dec 20, 2012)
Not sure I believe Boehner, but this is certainly what he should have done. And he should keep attaching this to every piece of legislation sent to the Senate. If the Senate wants to keep voting down the tax decreases the Democrats will own that position soon enough.
