Tax hike? We didn't sign up for no stinkin tax hike!

House leaders prepare to wrestle with question of taxes to pay for healthcare

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and fellow House Democratic leaders next week are expected to wade into the treacherous waters of how to pay for the House healthcare bill as they continue to negotiate the shape of the bill behind closed doors.

Throughout September, House leaders held more than 60 hours worth of caucus meetings with rank and file Democrats. But many problematic issues remain unresolved, and so far they have not decided what taxes to raise, or whether to raise them at all.
