Republicans Party of the RICH !

The Party of the RepublicanICH...Sticking it to Middle Class...

Sign here >

Republicans plan to skip town tonight(12/08/11/ without voting for the payroll tax cut extension. Failure to extend the payroll tax cut would mean a $1,000 tax hike for the average American family. Economists say it could also cost between 400,000 and 1 million American jobs. And get this: according to Politico, in a closed-door meeting Speaker Boehner told the Republican House caucus that extending the payroll tax cut and helping Americans pay their bills is “chicken shi--.” That’s the kind of reckless attitude that got our economy in trouble in the first place. Now, let’s put the pressure on Republicans to stop this. Help us reach our new goal of 100,000 people telling Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans in Congress that extending the payroll tax cut is critical to the American people. It's definitely not "chicken sh--“ >>
We only have until midnight to send this message to Republicans. Make sure you sign immediately.

From CNN : Senate Republicans have blocked a Democratic measure to extend the payroll tax cut and assess a new tax on income over $1 million to help pay for it.
Sixty votes were needed for passage. The vote was 50-48.
A separate Republican bill to extend the payroll tax cut calls for freezing federal pay as well as reducing the federal workforce by 10%, provisions rejected by Obama and Democrats.
The lower payroll tax rate is set to expire at the end of the year.

Thanks for all you do,

Underdog = Don Jones
