Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) said that President Barack Obama warned not passing the tax cut deal made with Republicans could end his presidency.  The Hill reports:

Obama is telling members of Congress that failure to pass the tax-cut legislation could result in the end of his presidency, Rep. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) said.

"The White House is putting on tremendous pressure, making phone calls, the president is making phone calls saying this is the end of his presidency if he doesn’t get this bad deal," he told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer.

Wow, maybe increased taxes would be worth that… hmmm….

Relax, I jest.
