    No, that was today's vote on extending the Bush Tax Cuts. The Regressive Party overwhelmingly voted against continuing the tax cuts.

    They voted to raise everyone's taxes.

    see why these things shouldn't be attached to unrelated bills?

    What ploy? The House scheduled a vote, just like the Regressives wanted.

    And 168 Regressives voted to raise EVERYBODY's taxes.

    Without researching this I believe this is the bill that the repubs voted against because it only included tax cuts for the middle and not for everyone. They are going to allow the democrats to raise taxes on the rich which isn't going to help small buisnesses and jobs.

    In my opinion the republicans didn't want to shoot themselves in the foot like the dems are doing.......AGAIN!!
