Tax cuts deal gaining momentum among Democrats?

Vice President Joe Biden met with House Democrats at the Capitol, and while some liberal lawmakers remained upset about aspects of the package, and hoped for some tweaks around the edges, Democratic leaders were resignedly preparing to support it.

There was talk in the Senate of moving to debate on the floor as early as Thursday, though that remained highly fluid, and Senate Democrats were reportedly asking the White House for minor changes to unspecified portions of the deal…

Even in the Senate, fiscal conservatives such as Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, have been silent on the tax cut issue, despite the fact that he has blocked numerous pieces of the legislation over the past year — many times over much smaller price tags — on the grounds that it should be paid for.
