Tea Party says payroll tax deal is a 'gift of uncertainty to America' – Rep. Huelskamp explains

House Speaker John Boehner said yesterday he expected the House to pass a two-month extension of the payroll tax holiday today.

The announcement of the extension was a dramatic turn from just days ago - when the speaker called the short-term extension "nonsense."

The deal will keep 168 million working families from facing a tax hike on New Year's Day. But many Republicans aren't happy with the deal.

Freshman Congressman Tim Huelskamp is one of them. He talks with Alina Cho this morning.
