With House Democrats voting to oppose Obama’s Tax Cuts Compromise this is the time for Democrats in Congress to show they have some backbone. Just because Obama is president and he is a Democrat that doesn’t mean that Congressional Democrats have to follow his lead on every issue. In this case it is a good time for Democrats to stand up; the people spoke loudly during the mid-term elections with their vote. The change in Washington they hoped and wanted was for Obama not to be the typical politician. This Tax Cuts Compromise has typical Washington Politics written all over it; so I was very pleased to hear about the House Democrats standing up and at least asking for more debate.
What was also encouraging was that Republicans like Michele ‘Nutbag’ Bachmann was even asking questions about this compromise; LOL, I know how crazy it sounds but I just kind of sorta gave Bachmann some credit. Don’t get me wrong Bachmann is still and will always be a ‘Nutbag’ but I can’t disagree her when it comes to spending in general (Just for the record I still disagree with her on what should be cut spending wise). The next couple of days as we will see if more Democrats and Republicans will stand up and oppose this compromise. It will all depend on public opinion, these kats will go where the poll number go on this issue.
I predict that more Democrats will side with the likes of Peter Welch, Anthony Weiner, and Bernie Sanders and force the president to revisit his compromise. What will be the end result of more debate is still to be determined, I can only hope we see the Barack Obama in this video clip…
In the mean time let us hope that more Democrats will rally behind Bernie Sanders and do whatever it takes to stop this flawed compromise…
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
