Hey, I've got an idea. We have consensus on tax cuts for those making less than $250,000. Lets divide the bill into smaller pieces so we can have a straight vote on each. You know, like the conservatives argued for HCR, Cap and Trade, Wall Street Reform, etc, etc. Cause, you know, we can have a vote and be on record for just what we're for and what we're not for.
Well, that's really what happened today and you can see just how good that idea was. It was bull then, it's bull now.
Can't wait to start asking, "Have you read the bill?" I think us progressives can pick up some protest signs cheap.
Dear fellow Democrats, stop the long worded explanation. Just say, "The conservatives are holding the middle class hostage to give people who don't need tax cuts more of your money." Then get into how the Republican's haven't found a way to offset the costs. When the try to turn it back on you, explain that you didn't run on that platform, they did. It's their own ideals they've abandoned before they even take power. Calling them hypocrites goes over people's heads (either they don't really understand the word because it's been over used or they expect all politicians to be one, however they're still upset when the actual action happens, they just don't care about the word).
