Republicans dig in also

The NYTimes reports that the Republicans have promised to block the Democrats' planned partial extension of the current tax system.  Key point:
Republicans, of course, will take over the majority in the House in January, at which point they would vote to extend all of the lower rates if Congress has not already resolved the issue.
 Yes, in the House. But in the Senate? Will the Democratic majority there even bring such a bill up for a vote?  Doubtful.  Might Obama veto it?

Lots of life left in this drama.
