No Tax Vote Today

Every day this week, we've expected to watch a tough vote in the Iowa house about whether Democrats can find the support to overhaul the state's tax system by eliminating federal deductibility. And each day so far this week, we've learned we will have to wait until the next day. That's the case again. An email from house Democrats this morning confirms the tax bill has been taken off the daily debate calendar. It's now put on Thursday's calendar. Will it actually happen then?

Outside the Iowa Statehouse on this tax day, protesters will hold Des Moines' second tea party in less than a week. This one is one of a handful in Iowa today and one of hundreds across the country.

Ousted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich hopes a judge will let him take part in a reality show in Costa Rica for a new show on NBC. The former gov reportedly needs the cash, which could be as much as $80,000 per episode, to pay for his legal bills. Could that famous hairdo of his really survive a Survivor-like reality show in the wild?
