    First Read - House Dem Caucus votes to reject tax compromise

    From NBC's Luke Russert


    In a non-binding vote Thursday, the House Democratic Caucus voted to reject the president's tax compromise.

    This is significant in the sense that it shows how many House Democrats are angry about the compromise with Republicans to temporarily extend the cuts for the highest earners, but it is not binding in regards to legislation that goes to the floor.

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland, who controls how legislation comes to the House floor, said on Morning Joe today that Democrats need to back the President's deal.

    But sources tell NBC News that with enough GOP support, there are enough moderate Democrats and rank and file Democrats to reach 218 in the House.

    so does this mean that the dem party is saying no to it's leader? This was the first public comprimise and the dems in Congress are pissed?

    *sigh*

    So much for bipartisanly fucking us all over at the same time.

    This is going to end badly for all of us.

    According the the story its a non-binding vote.

    Here's hoping smarter heads prevail.

    I don't like whats being added to the deficit with the Rep/Obama bill.

    I would like it even less if business owners making $250,00 or more were taxed. Thats a no win. Who the hell is going to hire or expand if they have to pay higher taxes?? I sure wouldn't.

    No one knows how that clusterfuck of a HC bill is going to affect business either. Too bad that peice of shit doesn't blow away.

    If business didn't have to worry about their taxes going up or the cost of Obamacare I think you would see the economy take off like a freight train.

    Fine... reject it...

    Either bring it back where the cost of the expanded UI benefits are taken care of by reducing funding to some bullshit program or entitlement... and then send it back across...... or, keep having the house screw around like this and watch 2012 become a fucking bloodbath with DEM politician carcasses left all over the place

    With what you see the dems doing right now, you should still see their filthy carcasses left all over the place in '12.

    Do these dumb fucks realize that these "tax cuts for the rich" also include small business owners that are unlucky enough to earn over 250k a year?

    Hey Palosi!....

    This is a real mess for Barry. Dims are threatening to revolt here and, if they do, he comes off looking like the village idiot. If you recall his press conference to explain the deal...why he did it, what his choices were, best to take now what he could get as opposed to a worse deal in the new congress next month, and so on. So if they follow through he's got his fellow Dimocrats telling the whole world what a lousy negotiator he is. That's rather unprecedented as far as I can recall.

    Who knew hope and change would turn out to be such a beautiful thing!

    This means that the GOP will have to sort out this mess early next year - and Obama will be stuck with the blame of failure for quite awhile.

    This temporary extension, while better than nothing, is not going to have a major stimulative impact on the economy. Obama has loudly telegraphed that he is going to be fighting to raise taxes on The Rich - so the small businesses will not expand jobs nearly as much as they would if the tax cuts were permanent or reliable for much longer time span.

    I have a stong feeling that the left of the Dem party will be looking for someone else in 2012.

    I wonder if the whole Dem party feels that way or they will stick with Barry Boy??
