So far, the only Virginia member of the House who has signed the discharge petition is Rep. Connolly. However, I’d certainly expect Rep. Scott and Rep. Moran to do be doing so shortly. What about Virginia Republicans?  Well, I guess we’ll soon see whether or not they want to allow taxes to go up on the middle class on January 1, 2013, or would prefer their “my way or the highway”/”fight to the death for the wealthiest Americans” approach.

P.S. Video of Speaker Pelosi’s speech is on the “flip.”

    I think this is really exciting – it’s been a long time since the discharge petition was used and I think this was a stroke of genious for Pelosi to use it now.  It will be interesting to see if some of the Republicans who have voiced support for raising taxes on the wealthy have to courage to sign on.

    Elle Woods would be so proud!
