Sam Stein On Tax Cut Deal

HuffPost reporter Sam Stein appeared on MSNBC's "Countdown" Monday night to discuss the White House's tax-cut compromise.

"To say it's anything but a capitulation by this administration does not do it justice," Stein said. "Clearly this White House wanted to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, they wanted to decouple it from the tax cuts for the middle class, and they're going home tonight admitting that they couldn't do it, they didn't have the votes, and they're going to have to relitigate this battle in two years."
