Video: Republican’t Party Meltdown on Payroll Taxes Accelerates


    In addition to the outrageous, cowardly behavior demonstrated by Republican’ts in this video (they won’t allow a vote on the Senate payroll tax cut bill, because they’re terrified it might PASS!), other Republicans are piling on. For instance, 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain says “the failure of the House to approve the bipartisan Senate bill to extend the payroll-tax cut is ‘harming the Republican Party.'” Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) says, “It angers me that House Republicans would rather continue playing politics than find solutions…Their actions will hurt American families and be detrimental to our fragile economy. We are Americans first; now is not the time for drawing lines in the sand.” And the silence by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) – who voted for the bill, along with most Senate Republicans, the House Republicans are now desperately blocking, is deafening. I’d say this was particularly crazy, but sadly it isn’t; just business as usual for John BONEr, Eric Can’tor and their crazy band of Teapublicans in the House (aka, “loony bin”).
