Congress Set to Vote on Tax Cuts, Censure for Rangel

Thursday, December 02, 2010

There is a lot on the agenda today for this lame-duck Congress. Senate hearings begin on the military funding bill that contains a legislative repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," while the House will vote on a motion to censure New York Rep. Charlie Rangel, recently convicted of 11 ethics violations. And later, the House will vote on whether to extend Bush-era tax cuts. Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich gives us the low-down on the day's votes.

It is time to give the President some spine before he destroys the Democratic Party!"Shared Sacrifice"has got to have some meaning!I urge the Congress to prevent the compromise on tax cuts for the wealthy 1-2%.

End tax cuts for the upper 2%. Trickle down is a myth. It does not create jobs; it siphons more wealth to the uber-rich. Besides, the wealthy have no interest in investing in the US. There are much better prospects overseas. All they'll do with their money is to send more jobs away from the US and waste tons of it on bogus political advertising, expensive personal campaigns, and overpaid lobbyists.
They don't need any more bailouts and tax breaks. They need to anti-up and pay their fare share.
