A large majority of House Republicans voted AGAINST the Bush tax cuts last night, and
in favor of higher tax rates on all Americans, including higher rates on ALL of the income of those making over $400,000 a year, not just on the amount over that threshold.
Remember, taxes went up before last night's vote, so a no vote meant a vote in favor of the higher rate...a clear violation of the Norquist pledge.
Isn't it absolutely amazing what hatred of one man can make some people do?

6. They voted against middle class tax cuts while the Dems voted for middle class & wealthy tax cuts
It's no mystery that the GOP was holding middle class hostage, now they've been reduced to throwing a temper tantrum because they hate the Prez. It's a lose/lose for the GOP.
