Has Rep. Charles Rangel already lost control of his tax reform plan?

Will the presidential Democrats let either house of Congress pass a plan that Republicans label the "Mother of All Tax Hikes"?

Why did Rangel use that Saddam-esque phrase to describe his tax reform plan? Didn't he foresee how easily it would be appropriated?

Who is defending the plan? I received a dozen e-mails from various Republicans blasting the plan yesterday..,. and heard not a peep from Democrats.
