Personally, I blame the Senate GOP because they didn't have the gumption to take a stand against a stopgap bill. Once again, the my Tea Party is made to look the bad guy because they try to do something more responsible.
    There's some good wishful thinking. Sadly for you, even Republicans and right-leaning news outlets are savaging House Republicans over this. Incredibly, they've managed to put themselves in a situation where the tax cut party is going to be responsible for raising the taxes of 150 million middle class Americans, and it's going to be reflected in their paychecks next month. And all the while they fight like rabid dogs to prevent taxes from going up for millionaires. I want to see the tax cut passed because it's good for the country, but if it doesn't happen at least there is the slight consolation of this galactic Republican strategic blunder.

    It's not a tax cut, it's a temporary tax holiday.

    Ok make up your minds.

    So then the Bush tax cuts wouldn't be considered a tax cut, using your logic, they would be a TEMPORARY tax holiday as well. So the teaparty shouldn't have a problem with those expiring as well.

    Sorry.

    Didja find that example of a major, non-emergency bill that passed a house in Congress, after passing one house, without any amendments yet? I'd like to see it.

    What the hell are you talking about???? You are making no sense. Come back after you've wiped the froth off you chin.

    Wow, you ran away from that one fast. I don't blame you. I suggest you run as far away as you can and never look back.

    When he retypes the post so that it makes a little sense, I'll be glad to respond. Hard to respond to jibberish.

    Re: Boehner demands Senate cancel its vacation

    I'll give a very original reply to this that I think no one has posted yet. I think everyone in Congress is wrong about this politically and fiscally, and I'll tell you why. The Dems are wrong because A) The cut they proposed (with GOP minority support) does not fund itself properly and has no long term plan B) They are cutting funding for the very program they always champion, Social Security C) They are punishing Freddie and Fannie, 2 companies they have a vested interest in seeing prosper. The GOP and Tea Party are wrong because A) They are cutting the one tax that can vilify them later. I don't put it past the Dems to use the fact that they want to cut this tax longer as a later argument that the conservatives are trying to bankrupt Social Security. Honestly, would that surprise anyone on this? B) The House should have made it known they would not vote this bill in a lot sooner than they did C) The GOP and Tea Party (notice I didn't mention them as one party) should have suggested another kind of tax cut besides the payroll tax. In addition, why would anyone want to cut this tax longer, which is something both parties want to do, just at different times. This is the last tax our gov't should be going after. As jacked up and underfunded as Social Security is, we should not be cutting the only source of funding for it. I don't agree with Social Security one iota. However, a promise was made to the American people, including myself, that we would get what we put in. I think Social Security should overhauled and made voluntary, but that's neither here nor there because its still active and we have to solve it. There you have it, a non-partisan look at how stupid our Congress is, no matter the party affiliation.
