House Republicans reject Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B”

Despite constant lobbying for support and rumored threats to leadership positions and/or committees assignments, House Republicans have apparently rejected Speaker John Boehner’s so-called “Plan B,” which would have raised taxes on those earning over $1 million.

The proposal, which was met with a veto threat from the White House, did not even make it to the House floor for a vote. What this does to Boehner’s speakership remains to be seen, but the prospect of further negoiations between the White House and Republicans look bleak.
