  •  Look at the Bush Tax Cuts (9+ / 0-)

    Passed in 2001, to the dismay of the Dems.

    They will be in effect at least thru 2013.

    President Obama's payroll tax cut lapses after 1 year.

    What do we as Dems stand for?

      You have framed it perfectly. Kudos.

    •  Maybe we should ask the Senate? (0+ / 0-)

      That appears to be who the White House is covering for, yet again.

        you can deliver to the Senate, nothing will happen. They're SENATORS and so dignified and so proper and so courteous that they cannot be expected to soil their beautiful minds with a search for votes.

        You don't think so? Ask Harry Reid. He never has the votes. Can't seem to find them anywhere. And he always knows this immediately after the question is asked. Amazing, isn't it? Saves so much time and fuss and keeps Harry's hands clean.
