    Ready, aim.................

    The house republicans will shoot this down. They surely would not have the integrity to try to vote on the millionaires taxes as a separate issue.

    Middle-Class Tax Cuts Preserved For A Year In Bill Passed By Senate (UPDATE)

    Perhaps they will just let the bill die of neglect, lacking the courage to even vote no.

    No republicans do not support policies of dividing people by class solely to engage in class warfare. If they did, they would be democrats.

    So this lowers the taxes on the middle class from what they are now?

    When are lefties going to quit whining about only controlling 2/3 of the federal government? The Barry Hussein administration has been participating in a circular firing squad for three years.

    Maybe they think now is a bad time to raise taxes on anybody. Even Clinton and Obama himself said it was a bad idea to raise taxes in a recession. Which we ain't yet, but it's close.

    Now the "tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans" are middle class tax cuts?

    The Obama administration is just kicking the can down the road for 1 year with not raising taxes on the middle class. After the election all bets are off on not raising them. Just another election year gimmick. :smoke:

    Lets see. The Republicans had control of both houses of congress for 12 years. They had the presidency for 8 years. For 6 of those years they had "complete" control of government meaning they controlled both houses and the presidency.

    What did they do?

    Two unfunded wars, two unfunded tax cuts, an unfunded "prebate", well over 6 trillion in new debt and the worst recession since the great one.

    What's not to like? By god, WE SHOULD DO THAT AGAIN.

    Can we have Reid arrested for loitering and dereliction of duty in not passing a budget?
