<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">President Barack Obama's Republican foes in the Senate blocked a move Saturday to let Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans expire, rejecting in the process Democrats' efforts to extend those breaks just for the middle class.

Obama said he was "very disappointed" at the vote.

"It makes no sense to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage to permanent tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent of Americans," he added. </div></div>


Yet again they show who they are really working for....

ie they work for those earning MORE than a million a year......Wall St.

Don't forget to also blame the 20 democrats that voted against it, and the 4 non votes.

Tough $hit. Now its on the record that the GOP opposed tax breaks for 98% of Americans because the super rich [ who don't need the money ] didn't get their cut.

Who are you to determine who needs their own money?

Talk about the height of arrogance!

A buddy of mine has 2 Corvettes, an Escalade, a 500SEL, and an older Ferrari.

I only have a GMC Z71, an MX5, and a Z24.

Should I be allowed to take one of his? After all, he certainly doesn't need it.

At the same time, I have 5 flat screen TV's. Another buddy of mine only has 1.
Should he be allowed to take 2 of mine so we both have 3? After all ... there are only 2 of us here and we certainly don't need 3.

Aitch has numerous cues nicer than mine. Should I be allowed to redistribute some of his to me? After all ... he certainly doesn't need them?

The far left needs a serious vacation to the hood and have some wealth redistribution explained to them.

And there you have it. The Dems knew that they could put a poison pill in the bil, and then force a vote for nothing more than political posturing. They don't care about the tax rates, they just wrote a bill they knew Reps would oppose, then forced a vote to gain political advantage.

They are USING the American public to advance their own political aspirations.

Thanks for poinnting it out to those who may not have noticed.

I've never seen so many wealthy people stepping out to protest their own continued tax cuts!

One could say, according to their own statements, the Repiglicans are holding the entire government hostage, and the Nation, in order to get an extention on the part of Bush's tax policy which benefits most, the wealthiest among us, including holding back an unemployment extention, for the suffering unemployed, who lost their jobs because of Repiglican/Bush/ economic policies.

Among the other important things they are obstructing, an important nuclear arms treaty, supported by virtually every American foreign policy expert, from the right, as well as the left.

Pigs!

<span style='font-size: 23pt'>Incredible. You got it totally a$$backwards.</span>

Take out that brain link you have to the Fox Command centre and listen.

A vote <span style='font-size: 26pt'>YES</span> was a vote for the <span style='font-size: 26pt'>98%</span>.

A vote <span style='font-size: 26pt'>NO</span> was a vote for the top<span style='font-size: 26pt'> 2%.</span>

All tax cuts are supposed to revert back to the rates under Clinton in 2011. Its not coincidence, its the way the Republicans and Bush WANTED to be.

The Republicans are holding the 98% hostage and all other business in Govt until they get a tax cut of $50,000 for those who earn a million $ a year - even tho they will have to borrow money and increase the debt by doing it.

Al this even after 'Trickle Down economics has shown not to work.

Maddow repeats the very same findings of the Congressional Budget Office.

There is no measurable beneficial stimulus to the economy from tax cuts for the wealty, nada, no jobs, and no stimulus.

Republicans have called them jof producers throughout this debate, a complete LIE!

I posted that information from the CBO, but as you know, FACTS, are ignored by the right.

Bah Bah Bah....

Well actually, it is the Reps and Dems who decided it is unfair to steal from the rich and hand out to Democrat buddies.
