Pelosi Moves to Force Vote on Top Rate Tax Hike

Pelosi and Democrats would need 218 signatures for the petition to force the legislation to the House floor, which means they would need more than 20 Republicans to support the discharge petition. According to The Hill, that seems unlikely, even though some prominent House Republicans like Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) have said he would be in favor of extending the Bush tax cuts solely for those making less than $250,000.
