Play it again, Sam…

Tea Partied House Republicans, recently, voted to deregulate banking institutions by repealing a key provision in the Dodd-Frank anti-bailout legislation. Their repeal reduces the amount that Wall Street Banks would have to put up for a future financial crisis and will ensure that taxpayers will have to bailout Wall Street Banks (again)!


On the positive side, the US Senate narrowly passed a Democratic plan to extend expiring tax breaks for “all American families making less than $250,000 per year “with those making above $250,000 paying higher taxes in 2013!


Here's the catch! Republican House majority leaders Boehner and Cantor kept their promise to have their Tea Partied Republican foot soldiers pass a vote to extend tax cuts for the wealthy and increase taxes for middle class and poor families (again)!


If Republican House representatives would just pass President Obama’s Jobs Bill, middle class and poor families could afford to organize a discount travel pool; get on a plane; fly to Casablanca and avoid paying Tea Partied Republican tax hikes like somebody else we ALL know - here’s looking at you kid!
