Right-winger's Head Explodes

WASHINGTON — House Republicans on Tuesday rejected a Senate bill that would have prevented a payroll tax cut from expiring on New Year’s Day, saying they wanted a year-long extension or no extension at all.

House Republicans accomplished that with a convoluted motion to reject a Senate compromise that would have extended the 2 percent payroll tax break for two months, voting 229 to 193 to send the measure to a conference committee.

Seven Republicans voted with Democrats, and no Democrats crossed the aisle. They were Reps. Charles Bass (R-N.H.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Tim Johnson (R-Ill.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.) and Frank Wolf (R-Va.).

Yep, the world of right-wingers has been turned upside down. For decades, they’ve been told to believe that tax cuts are the answer to everything, and now their party has blocked a tax cut, simply because it was proposed by Democrats. So now they’re waiting to be told how to react. Conservatives have difficulty handling ambiguity and this contradicts the basic tenets of conservatism, which is: tax cuts = good, regulation = bad. It’s only a matter of time before some right-winger’s head explodes.

  1. This is not an income tax … this is a cut in your social security tax … for two months. I’m wondering how the Congress expects to pay out social security checks now that they spent the money and have lowered the rate … by 2% for 2 months! wow! I’m gonna buy an RV! It seems like just a couple months ago Obama wasn’t sure if he would be able to send out those checks .. without raising the debt ceiling … this Congress is nothing but a gd freak show on both sides of the isle. Nothing but thieves, perverts, felons, and every sort of lewd fellow. I’m sick of the lies and I probably won’t even vote next year …. why waste my time replacing one crook with another?
    GD freaks!
