The Odd Reference To The Pledge…Completely Unexplained, But At Least Referenced

“GOP lawmakers face a difficult choice. To pass any bill that Obama seems likely to sign, they must break their pledge by agreeing to raise tax rates on high incomes – such as those above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples.”

I would love to see every article about this issue reference the fact that GOP members have signed this pledge to a lobbyist and face primary challengers, funded by this same lobbyist, if they break the pledge.  This issue is largely completely ignored, but even at times like in this article, it is a vague reference with no explanation as to what pledge the writer is talking about.
