“But the first few weeks of 2012 are brimming with issues that could trip up the GOP majority. House Republicans first have to deal with a year-long payroll tax extension…They’ll also have to contend with a growing deficit of trust between the rank-and-file and leadership…All told, the House Republicans are going into 2012 weaker and more divided than when they took control of the chamber a year ago…. But as Republicans in the rank and file brood and bark about who is responsible for the December payroll debacle — the party’s biggest setback since taking power — GOP leadership is looking for an issue to latch onto that would add some substance to a normally light legislative year.”
