    House leader rejects Senate payroll tax plan(edited)

    House leader rejects Senate payroll tax plan - CNN.com

    The spineless GOP House leader has shown his weakness again by changing his position on the bipartisan Senate payroll tax cut deal. After first saying "It was a good deal" he now says he opposes it. As Nancy put it ""By holding up this bipartisan compromise, tea party House Republicans are walking away once again, showing their extremism and clearly demonstrating that they never intended to give the middle class a tax cut," Pelosi said.

    is it any wonder that the approval rating of Congress is in the single digits? Allowing a minority to determine policy is against our Constitution isn't it?
    Boehner needs to grow a pair and get his House in order. We the people need to throw those Koch employees out of the House in 2012 or face more and more obstructionism.

    Re: Boehner bows to Teaparty and reverses support for payroll tax cut deal.

    It's a problem that Boehner agree's with the position taken by Obama?

    No, apparently it is a problem that Boehner flops to his base?

    I think it is interesting. One side is playing better politics than the other right now, but I don't know which.

    Actually, both are kinda sucking it up at the moment. They are both so busy trying to screw the other guy that they aren't realizing that the best method to win the next election is to actually govern. The people of this country don't need a scapegoat and a great politician, we need a government and I think a lot more people are able to tell the difference than the news and politicians think.

    The first team to stop beating the other guys and start fixing problems will win.
    Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!

    Obama believes the tax cuts should be extended for a year. The House is taking up his arguement.

    The T's in the House want to end the payroll cuts that benefit the middle class and give more to the millionaires. That's who pays their bills and I'm tired of it. Who are the fools that voted them in?

    Then I guess that's Obama's position also since he is for extending the cuts also?
