    Gorver Norquist won't allow Boehner to bring middle class tax cuts to a vote.

    Grover has Boehner by the short hairs.

    But Nancy Pelosi, middle class warrior is taking action.

    "If Speaker Boehner refuses to schedule this widely-supported bill for a vote, Democrats will introduce a discharge petition to automatically bring to the floor the Senate-passed middle class tax cuts," Pelosi said in a statement. The Democratic leader first warned of a discharge petition on Friday.

    Under a "discharge petition," a bill can be brought to the floor without going through a committee or without approval of House leadership. The bill would need an absolute majority - 218 votes - to pass.

    While there are only 192 Democrats in the House, some Republicans have expressed support for the bill.
    ONCE THE MIDDLE CLASS TAX CUTS ARE PASSED NORQUIST IS DONE. HE HAS NO MORE CARDS LEFT.
