    Then, in a vote of 256-171, they voted on the Republicans' bill, H.R. 8, which they actually have the gall to call the "Job Protection and Recession Prevention Act of 2012." That one extends tax cuts to the rich on all of their income, because the current low tax rates for the wealthiest Americans has done so much to protect jobs and prevent recessions. They're kind of slow learners. How slow? They wasted time on this bill, knowing it will die in the Senate.
    A variation of this ALREADY GOT VOTED DOWN in the Senate  very recently.

      That hasn't stopped them from 33 bills to repeal the ACA. They've even admitted most bills are for political reasons these days.

        I can't think of one that was NOT political.  The fuckers even want to rename our coastal waters after that POS Reagan.  I guess maybe a few post offices weren't political, but the fact that these fuckers all but destroyed our postal system for political reasons more than offsets that.
