    Senate Republicans reject measures to extend payroll tax break - latimes.com

    Why does the GOP insist on turning America into a plutocracy?

    The reason why the GOP isn't passing the payroll tax break is because it is tied to so many tax hikes that the break is illusory.

    Why do the Dems Hate Seniors so much?
    Their new health care bill has devastated Seniors ability to see a Doctor, because of the Caps made to physicians. Doctors are not taking any new patients who have Medicare.
    Now they want to extend another year of payroll tax that funds senior's Social Security and Medicare.
    Short term fix and long term devastation.
    Thank goodness there are Repubs and some Dems who are still for Seniors, and both bills were rejected.

    1,000 is not a tax hike, it is restoring the money paid into Social Security and Medicare.
    What part of- Dems (who had the majority in 09 and 10) voted to take away Seniors Social Security and Medicare Funds are you not getting?

    Let's see, the DEMOCRAT controlled Senate couldn't pass a bill extending a payroll tax cut...but that's the GOPs fault. In the vote to end debate, two Democrats and one Independent joined Republicans in killing the Democrat bill...but it's all the GOP's fault.

    Lastly, Republicans would be happy to extend the payroll tax cut as long as it's paid for with spending cuts elsewhere. Is that not reasonable to you or is the federal government running so lean and mean there is just no way we could find the needed $112 billion to cut?
