Why won't Republicans help force a vote on the House floor on extending middle class tax breaks? Watch Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) explain.

Duncan is for keeping the tax break for the middle class, he "voted for that." But he won't sign a discharge petition on the bill that will actually make it happen because "I'm not going to give control of the floor to Democrats."

This really is just a game to them.

Use this tool to e-mail your representative, asking them to sign the discharge petition. If your member has signed it, you can thank him or her, too.
