GUTLESS DEMOCRATS LEAVE DC WITH THE LARGEST TAX HIKE IN HISTORY LOOMING
Leaving Washington with the expiration of the tax cuts still looming is tantamount to voting in favor of raising taxes on every American. Of course the liberal mentality tries to claim that the expiration of the tax cuts is not a tax increase but when an individual has not been paying at the higher rate for almost ten years when the rate takes affect it WILL be a tax hike.
Democrats have tried to fluff this off stating there was just not enough time to deal with the vote which is a flat out lie. Since Democrats became the majority in 2006 it has been well known that the tax cuts would expire at the end of 2010 and Democrats have continually tabled any debate or consideration about the tax cuts. So the ,"no time," excuse is nothing more than another deception by Democrats. Before they became the majority whenever the issue of making the cuts permanent was brought up by the GOP majority Democrats filibustered the vote and killed it. So when they expire the fault lies with Democrats alone!
Democrats have long mentioned just letting the tax cuts expire which it now seem has been their intention all along as both Reid and Pelosi refused to even take up the issue during their tenure as Speaker and Senate Majority Leader. Now the largest tax increase in our Nations history is set to take place in a few short weeks and Congress in not in session and will not be in session until after the mid term election.
The legislative schedule during the lame duck session will greatly depend on the result of the election on November 2. With Democrats likely losing the House and now with the Senate also in play you can almost bet that Democrats will use the lame duck session to force through as much socialist legislation as possible before the new Congress which will have a GOP majority takes power in January. Voting on the Bush tax cuts will not be a priority since allowing them to expire is more in line with the Obama, Pelosi and Reid agenda.
Yet Democrats who could not wait to leave Washington and hit the campaign trail will lie to the electorate about how they are the compassionate protectors of the middle class and poor while the GOP is the party of the rich. Completely ignoring the fact that without a vote on the tax cuts Democrats have doomed the middle class, the poor and the rich to experience the largest tax hike in our history. Truly caring and compassionate, ( all sarcasm intended).
With the tax cuts destined by Democrats to expire anyone who votes for these political ideologues is voting for national suicide. Anyone who doubted whether Democrats had any concern for the American people and their only goal was political power can lay those doubts to rest. By leaving Washington without a vote on this massive tax hike Democrats have proven beyond a shadow of doubt that political power is all they care about and the American people are nothing more to them than pockets lined with hard earned money they can steal from us in order to pay for their socialist country destroying agenda.
