Rep. Connolly Rips GOP for Unrelated, Hyper-Partisan Riders on Payroll Tax Cut Bill


    As Rep. Connolly says, “Republicans included a poison pill with actual poison — mercury, arsenic and other toxins; what does gutting the Clean Air Act have to do with payroll tax cuts? Nothing!”

    How difficult is this for Republican’ts?  Apparently, simply cutting taxes for working Americans is too hard for them, unless they can load up the bill with this, that, and the other pet right-wingnut/anti-environment cause of theirs. Now, if it were a tax cut for the top 0.1% or ExxonMobil, you know they’d be all about that. Priorities, priorities.
