GOP Congressman Won’t Extend Middle Class Tax Cuts To Avoid Giving ‘Control’ To Democrats

Source: Think Progress

Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sought to overcome the GOP’s resistance to voting on a Senate-passed measure that would extend Bush-era tax cuts to middle class Americans by introducing a discharge petition that, if signed by 218 members, could force the House to take-up the measure. Some Republicans, weary of the overwhelming public support for raising rates on the richest two percent of Americans, have urged the GOP leadership to allow the vote, but have yet to formally sign Pelosi’s discharge. Republican leadership continues to insist on extending tax cuts for all Americans, while President Obama said he would only sign legislation that would maintain reductions for individuals who earn $200,000 or less and couples who make $250,000 or less.

But in a recent photo-op with constituents, Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) explained why Republicans are refusing to give in. The Tennessee Republican admitted that he won’t vote to extend tax cuts to 98 percent of Americans because doing so would cede control to Democrats.

Wouldn't you love being a Republican member of the House? You get to flip the bird to your constituents secure in the knowledge that Freedom Works and billionaires like Koch and Sheldon Adelson will bankroll your campaign.

Sheeple,

The Son of Communists is Re-Occupying the Peoples House thanks to you Ignorant Entitled of the 1/5th that put him there again.

It is beyond time for you Victim Demokrats to "Own" what you have done to America, Get some new talking Points, accept responsibility for what you have done, and stop blaming your Fellow Citizens that used their lives to become wealthy vs you Sheeple who have wasted your lives seeking Free Shaat from the productive for the condition of your empty existence.

"All men are created equal by our Creator"....Becuase you Sheeple choose to live on the Demokrat Plantations does not mean that your neighbor needs to sacrifice himself or her family to support your choices.

Now STFU, and go enjoy the next 2 years of your Messiah's Rule.....Impeachment is coming soon for the next Demokrat Criminal, Barry Soetoro, who you Sheeple empowered.

It's like a chicken or the egg thing with you. Did the delusions cause the drinking or did the drinking cause the delusions? Doesn't matter in the end I suppose.

Reid Won’t Allow Vote on Obama’s Fiscal Cliff Plan

By Katrina Trinko

December 5, 2012 4:02 P.M.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell just proposed that President Obama’s fiscal cliff deal go up for a vote in the Senate, but majority leader Harry Reid wouldn’t permit a vote on the deal. From McConnell’s remarks on the Senate floor:


If the President’s proposal was made in good faith, Democrats should be eager to vote for it. So I’m surprised the Majority Leader just declined the chance for them to support it with their votes.

I guess we’re left to conclude that it couldn’t even pass by a bare majority of votes, and that they’d rather take the country off the cliff than actually work out a good-faith agreement that reflects tough choices on both sides.

Fredrika,

Perhaps have your Partner Bruce type posts for you. There is an old fashioned concept that was eliminated from education in the Government Schools that you may find useful as you attempt to create some meaning in your shallow existence by posting on Topix. The concept is called "Context".

Without "Context" for you ignorant posts, nobody can understand what you are saying in your empty one-liner non-responses.
