The Iowa Republican: Stuck on 50: Repeal of federal deductibility is in doubt... For now
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Democrat leaders in the House are having difficulty finding the 51
votes required to pass the repeal of federal deductibility. House
Democrats originally planned to debate and vote on HF 807 tomorrow,
but the federal deductibility bill has been removed from the calendar
for the time being. As it stands now, the following Democrats are
opposed to the bill: Rep. Geri Huser - Altoona, Rep. Doris Kelley -
Waterloo, Rep. Brian Quirk - New Hampton, Rep. Dolores Mertz -
Ottosen, Rep. Elesha Gayman - Davenport, Rep. Paul Bell - Newton.
Democrats are working on an amendment aimed to get one or two of the
Representatives listed above to flake.
