Another shlep who will do whatever Obama tells him to do.

(Politico) — House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said Monday he was “not enthusiastic” about an emerging deal to avert the fiscal cliff and wouldn’t commit to voting for it.

“[President Barack Obama] is prepared to compromise and has been willing to compromise and, in fact, has compromised throughout the last two years,” Hoyer said on MSNBC. “Do some Democrats not like that? Yes, I think that is the case. I frankly am not enthusiastic about the compromise being talked about today.”

Hoyer, a Marylander considered the most moderate member of Democratic leadership in the House, said he wouldn’t commit to voting either way until he saw a final bill.e cliff.”
