The House Democrats have voted against Obama's GOP-negotiated tax deal, according to CNN. Maryland Dem Chris Van Hollen explained, "This message today is very simple: That in the form that it was negotiated, it is not acceptable to the House Democratic caucus. It's as simple as that. We will continue to try and work with the White House and our Republican colleagues to try and make sure we do something right for the economy and right for jobs, and a balanced package as we go forward," he said.

The tax deal as economic stimulus is considered by many to be a farce. Keep checking back for more updates.
