VP Biden Gives the Weekly Address


    The full transcript is here. According to Biden, “Congress must extend these needed unemployment benefits before it goes home for the year.  And it must bolster economic growth by preserving tax cuts for our middle class.” I agree on both counts, including the tax cuts for people who are truly middle class or working class, until unemployment’s back down to “normal” (5%-6%?) levels.

      Unless I am wrong the senate repugs will prevent a vote on tax cuts this year. The repugs are going to let the thing run out so the house repugs can write their own bill next year.

      Well, the repugs did what I though they would. Surprising is that of the votes taken 5 democrats(not the same) joined the repugs for each vote. Although those 5 would still have allowed the vote to fail since they needed 60.
