It's back to work day for Congress and the president wants lawmakers to start on some economic bills and initiatives. They'll start with a big twist from the minority leader about tax cuts for the middle class.

Last week OBAMA pushed pretty hard against Minority Leader John Boehner and the GOP for stalling measures to help small businesses and doing nothing to help the middle class. Did the Minority Leader blink?

Mr. Boehner said Sunday that he'd vote to extend tax cuts for middle-class Americans (those making no more than $250,000 a year) even if the Bush tax cuts for the richest 3 percent were allowed to expire. What's that about?

ABC News correspondent Steven Portnoy reports from Washington.
