The House of Representatives just voted 234-188 to extend the Bush-era tax cuts to families earning under $250,000, denying Republicans a separate vote on extending all of the tax cuts, at least for now. Three Republicans — Reps. Ron Paul, Walter Jones and John Duncan — voted for the legislation.
The bill now moves to the Senate, where it faces certain defeat. The only reason they had the vote at all was so Democrats would be able to portray Republicans as being against middle class tax cuts, and to give Democrats a tax cut bill they could vote for, given that many of them will vote against any future bill to extend all of the tax cuts.
Here is the roll call on the bill.
