Suckers! Republicans Not Giving up on Tax Cuts

Well, as soon as I report it, they flip-flop again. One thing is for sure: You can always count on Tom DeLay to steer the train back onto the wrong track.
From the Times:

For about an hour and a half yesterday, Republicans had a new tax-cut policy.

Addressing a group of credit-union officials in the morning, Treasury Secretary John W. Snow said that hurricane recovery spending would "push to the back burner" the GOP's plans to extend the tax cuts this year.

But about 90 minutes later, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) held a news conference in his office and asserted that "we're not reexamining" the commitment to extend the tax cuts. "That's not an option," DeLay said, then, for emphasis, added: "Not an option."

You're not the only one. Sounds like party unity is taking a hit...
