Proof that the Democrats want to go over the fiscal cliff and raise taxes on everyone. This is what 53% of you idiots voted for. Boehner is actually passing a bill that gives Democrats and Obama what they’ve been screaming for and raises taxes on real millionaires and billionaires who actually earn $1 million per yer. Obama and Democrats want to raise taxes on those who make $250,001 per year. This bill exposes the liars and Reid refuses to even vote on it so the Dems can take us over the fiscal cliff.
From The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday the Senate will not vote on Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) “Plan B” to extend tax rates for family income below $1 million.
The Democratic leader blasted Boehner for wasting time on “fiscal cliff” legislation that will not see floor time in the upper chamber.
“We are not taking up any of the things that they’re working on over there now,” Reid told reporters. “It’s very, very, very unfortunate the Republicans have wasted an entire week on a number of pointless political stunts.”
“The bill has no future, if they don’t know it now, tell them what I said,” he added.
Reid said Boehner should schedule a House vote on the Senate-passed bill to extend the Bush-era tax rates for family income below $250,000.
Reid, like most Democrats, don’t care that the US Constitution says that any bill that raises taxes must originate in the House, not the Senate.
“The Senate bill is the only one that will be signed into law. We could protect middle-class families tomorrow,” Reid said. “The Speaker refuses to bring our bill to the floor because it would pass.”
