Let me get this straight:

The Democrats want to keep the tax cuts for the little people and the Republican's are blocking that bill to make sure the wealthy get to keep theirs.

And it's the Democrats fault?

Wrong.. Democrats could put out the bill.. Why dont they?

One flaw with your little argument.. Republicans arent blocking any bill.. THERE ISNT ONE...It doesnt exist.. Democrats have to MAKE a bill in order for it to be blocked.. But lets compare this to healthcare. Republicans HATED that.. and couldnt stop it.. what makes you think Republicans could stop this

The pay cut is more than compensated for by lower taxes that the limited extenssion of the Bush tax cuts lead to for 98 percent of the population.

I sure as hell wouldn't expect Bloomberg news to report things any other way except to say that big business is being tortured to death. I'm tired of hearing it, frankly.

It's just a convenient excuse liberals use to cover for their democrats' failings. If they really wanted to pass a bill, they would have... just like with Obamacare.

Let me get this straight. Dems are blocking to allow income taxes to be equally apportioned and opting to use the rather blunt instrument as a means of social justice instead?

And it's the Republicans fault?

Hey, everyone, settle down. We're being too hard on the Democrats. You see, the congressional Democrats are very afraid, so they aren't thinking very clearly. They do not understand what is happening to their jobs, so they cling to their class-envy beliefs and adopt bigoted attitudes towards people who are different, you know, productive and self-reliant people.
