    Pipeline showdown escalates payroll tax cut fight - CNN.com

    But when it comes to the rich, no rider and no conditions. The GOP has historically shown that their hearts and minds are with the wealthy. They know the Dems want to help the middle class, so they chose what they can pull from thieir goody bag to throw in as a condition.

    I like how the bill also includes the states being allowed to drug test people applying for unemployment..What total bullshit, and a waste of money and time.

    Uh, the wealthiest brackets saw the biggest cuts. They get the same cuts as everyone else, plus a 4% reduction their rate for every dollar in the top marginal rate.

    You can't very well give a tax cut to someone not paying taxes in the first place.

    So you guys want a tax cut, and you are going to oppose creating private sector jobs rather than agree to the tax cut?

    Yes we should run the pipeline right through the wealthy neighborhoods right?. Thought not. Poison the water for farmers (no problem). The right has no rational argument on this point and those who try are just ignorant. This president is correct on this point. He is far from perfect but all of the people backing the 1% are as stupid as they come. They will throw your asses into the cold as quick as a democrats. Kissing their ass will do no good. When you loose your job to outsourcing, I am sure they will let you stay with them.

    It shouldn't be in the bill, along with a few other things, that is the point. ;)
