Accusing Republicans of “hostage taking,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged members of Congress to sign a discharge petition that would require the House to vote on the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts only for annual incomes under $250,000.

“Everyone, 100% of the American people would benefit from it; 100% of taxpayers, small business, wage earners and the rest,” Pelosi said Tuesday on the House floor.

“The Republicans are saying rather than passing that, they want to hold it hostage to giving an additional tax cut to people making over $250,000 a year – that’s not negotiating, that’s hostage taking. So, today on the floor of the House, the Democrats have proposed a discharge petition.”
