Boehner tweets that the deal is done before presser

Just a while ago House Speaker John Boehner tweeted that his party would bend on the payroll tax holiday two-month extension that has already been approved by the Senate.

Agreement reached to ensure families’ taxes don’t go up on 1/1 & stop Senate bill provision that’d hurt job creators


This is good for the people and a late but needed move the the Speaker. CNN’s Dana Bash reports that Boehner told his caucus that he had reached a deal with Senate Leader Harry Reid and that was it.

The Speaker made a brief statement at a press conference which didn’t contain the normal bluster and theater we’ve gotten used to. Boehner said “I don’t think it’s any time for celebration…”  I’m sure you don’t Mr. Speaker.
