Did you know that only 13 Republicans voted against Tax and Cap?

John Cornyn and KBH both voted to increase your tax burden by $902 Billion in the next nine years.

And that is on the low side, because we all know that the CBO lowballs taxpayer costs and inflates benefits.

CBO estimates that enacting the legislation would increase revenues [OUR TAX MONEY] by about $902 billion over the 2009-2018 period, net of income and payroll tax offsets[AFTER DEDUCTIONS]. Over the next 10 years, we estimate that direct spending would total about $836 billion [AT A MINIMUM]. The additional revenues from enacting this legislation would exceed the new direct spending by an estimated $66 billion, thus decreasing future deficits (or increasing surpluses) by that amount over the next 10 years. Other spending could result from enactment of the bill, but it would be subject to future appropriation action [WE CAN'T EVEN GUESS HOW MUCH THIS'LL COST]. This estimate does not address such spending. In years after 2018, net revenues attributable to the legislation would exceed annual direct spending through 2050. Yeah, that's my bolding.

So, what is it that makes them not listen to the vast majority of the voters who don't want to waste money- AND pay even higher energy costs for some PC B.S. that only Libs believe?
Ok, that was a no brainer- money and power, all forwarded by getting re-elected.
The end-all and be-all of politics. Now the energy lobbyists are all flooding re-election coffers as fast as they can get a Senators attention.

I DARE a politician to come on here and tell me I'm wrong and that they're "Doing this for the betterment of the Nation"....

I know you think we're absolute morons- but just *HOW* stupid do you really think we are. I don't think I'll be voting for anything with a "R" behind their name.

Oh,,,Glenn?, Rush? You DO remember that about 140 years ago the Republican party was a minor third party- right?
