    WASHINGTON -- The Senate failed Thursday to pass an extension of a payroll tax cut, leaving in limbo a break that saved working class households about $1,000 a piece this year.

    Democrats sought to extend and expand the break, while paying for it with a 3.25 percent surtax on incomes over $1 million. Just one Senate Republican, Maine's Susan Collins, voted for the middle class break, which died 51 to 49 in a filibuster. Three Democrats opposed the bill.

    "I am extremely disappointed that Republicans' insistence on protecting millionaires from paying a penny more in taxes has blocked our effort to extend and expand the payroll tax cut for millions of middle class families and small business owners," said Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

    Minutes later, a Republican version of the measure was blocked by Democrats and a majority of the GOP senators.

    Did anyone really expect the Repubs to do anything FOR the working class?

    Of course not. They work for the 1% and we all know it.

    Who were the three Dems? Hope they lose their jobs next election.

    I'm just really sick of this constant sucking up to money at the expense of country.

    And, as usual, the damn cowards hide behind a filibuster.

    Are you still pretending to be a fan of Ron Paul today?

    Don't ask me.

    Ask the Repubs who just raised the taxes on the 99% while keeping the lower taxes for the 1%.

    Why don't we also ask them why the tax cuts for the wealthy "pay for themselves" while tax cuts for the rest of us have to be taken from something else that just might benefit the 99%.
