Did Boehner just grow a spine?

Sorry for the short diary. I will try to prolong it as long as possible. I just heard on the radio that John Boehner said that tomorrow the House Of Representatives will keep the tax cuts in place. He also dared the president to veto it. Is this really true? Or am I living in an alternate universe. Again, sorry for the short diary but I don’t know any more about this. Could someone please fill me in on what is really going down?
