Dem Leader Blocks President Obama’s Tax Hike

Senate Democrats Are Blocking A Vote On President Obama’s Tax Hike Despite His Monday Plea To ‘Pass A Bill’


OBAMA: ‘Pass A Bill… I Will Sign It Tomorrow’


PRESIDENT OBAMA: “So my message to Congress is this: Pass a bill… I will sign it tomorrow.  Pass it next week; I’ll sign it next week.  Pass it next — well, you get the idea.” (Laughter.) (President Obama, Remarks, 7/9/12)


SEN. REID: ‘I Object’


SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): “On Monday, the president said if the Senate passes this tax hike on small businesses, he would sign it right away. That’s what he said Monday, two days ago. I can’t see why our friends on the other side wouldn’t want to give him the chance.So with that, Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that at 2:00 p.m. today, the motion to proceed to S.2237 be adopted and that the first two amendments in order to the bill be the Hatch-McConnell amendment number 2491, which would provide for the extension of current rates while we work on tax reform, and a Reid or designee amendment to enact the president’s proposal which as I have said would impose job-killing taxes on nearly one million business owners.”


THE PRESIDING OFFICER: “Is there an objection?”


SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “…Madam President, I object.” (Sens. McConnell & Reid, Floor Remarks, 7/11/12)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
