  •  I would LOVE to see the middle class tax cuts (5+ / 0-)

    with only Democratic votes.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      But the Republicans are finding a method that they don't have to deal with extending unemployment or cuts or anything else -- and then they'll run on the idea the Dems raised taxes [on the top 2%].

      I just hate seeing Team Crazy find a way to sidestep the hard stuff.

      It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. -- Molly Ivins

      "Present" and the one or two Independents voting "Yeah"?  Oh, that's right, the Independents are over in the Senate where they've already held the vote (and no I wouldn't want to see Lieberman and Sanders have the power to determine the fate of the tax cuts.  Lieberman, in what might be his last vote in the Senate ever, might just vote "Nay".
