What Tea Party Sowed
With the help of the Tea Party Republicans, Speaker of the House John Boehner suffered a humiliating and embarrassing defeat today; one that calls into question his competence as Speaker. He was forced to allow a vote on the middle class Payroll Tax Cut, which Republicans in the House, after days of rhetoric and vitriol, begrudgingly passed. Imagine that… having to be pressured to help 160 million Americans save an average of $40.00/paycheck. A government “by the people, for the people”? Let’s not forget this come election time shall we?
After signing the extension this morning, President Obama is well on his way to his Christmas in Hawaii – Aloha Mr. President.
