Even president Obama has joined the fight to keep the hostage from being harmed.

In spite of that, the far left in congress are using the unemployed ... which they largely created ... for political gamesmanship.

Further, they are attempting to force tax increase on the bottom 98% of American workers just so they can continue their agenda of class warfare and punish the top 2% for daring to resist the fascist economy and pursue the American dream.

Have they no dignity?

Have they no honor?

Have they no compassion?

I fully expect Gee, aitch, woofie, stretcher, and Snoopy to hammer these un-American activities!

DeFazio said he spoke to the Speaker prior to the vote and that she "did not express any opposition to what we proposed."
