Can House Republicans accept a scaled-back deal?

The most likely deal on the table right now seems to be the scaled-down proposal president Obama suggested on Friday, which extends tax cuts on household income under $250,000, extends unemployment insurance, and likely extends the alternative minimum tax fix.

But is this a plan House Republicans can get behind? Outfront tonight is Republican Congressman Tom McClintock of California, who is also a member of the House Budget Committee.
