    As we have witnessed--congress doesn't work anymore. The GOP house--agreed with Barack Obama and passed a one year extension for the payroll tax cut last week. After it passed they sent it to the Democrat lead senate and they sent it back with only a two month extension.

    Of course Obama is out there blaming Republicans for doing what he asked them to do--and now we're back to gridlock. So what is it--that DEMOCRATS do not like about a one year payroll tax cut extension? Why do they only want a two month extension?

    And why is it that Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid has already left for his Christmas break--along with many other democrats in the Senate--while the GOP house has conference members still in Washington D.C. willing to work out a compromise with senate Democrats?

    Any guess's as to what they're up too?

    The GOP sent the Senate a clean bill extending the payroll tax cut?

    Really?

    Well the GOP did add in the Keystone pipeline--actually a bill that actually CREATES private sector jobs without costing taxpayers a dime. Maybe that's what democrats and Obama didn't like-- :badgrin:

    Real private sector job growth would inhibit Obama's insatiable appetite to expand the size and scope of the Federal Government.

    Creating jobs would get people independent again and not having to rely on government. That is not what the Dems want and they just proved it by refusing the payroll tax cut because the bill contained - gasp - something that would get people back to work.

    Agreed: The Keystone pipeline--Obama threatened to veto if it was in the bill--well it was--and the 2 month extension they want--is so they can bring up class warfare in a couple of months again. REAL PRIVATE sector job growth is the enemy of this administrations agenda.

    You're retarded. Both of you.

    A sharp drop in UE would guarantee his re-election. How by any metric would that not be in his best interests?

    Your thread title is disingenuous. Pubs shouldn't need to use this as a bargaining chip. They should be in favor of a tax cut to begin with.

    That is because democrats cant do anything that doesn't involve spending.

    However recently over this issue the media has been portraying democrats as "for the middle class" because they support the payroll tax cuts, but what people don't know is that democrats are only using the issue as a wedge for more spending.

    The democrats are like "appropriate our spending and we will agree to your tax cuts"

    The democrats in the senate are some of the dumbest or evil motherfuckers in the world - potentially both..

    Bullshit--there's nothing wrong with the title of this thread--that is exactly what happened and Democrats just pulled one of their cut and run routines. THEY'RE not there--they LEFT--they went on Christmas break.

    DEMOCRATS all say--they want a one year extension on the payroll tax cut. But it was democrats that sent back a bill for a 2 month extension--did not approve the GOP house's one year extension----and then left town.
