5. It already passed senate, but Republicans won't bring it to a vote in house.

 

Republicans have majority in house and control what is brought up to vote. That is why Obama is trying to put pressure on Gop by
going to the people so they will contact their representatives to make them vote, on bill already sitting in House of Representatives waiting for vote. They should have put pressure BEFORE election on the Tea Party, we would be having an easier time of it now.
A lot of republican agree with middle class tax cuts and higher taxes on the upper two percent. Gop don't want vote because it might go through, because Gop is the party of tax cuts. Would they hold middle class hostage again, to spare the rich a 4.6% tax hike on their
Net income OVER $250,000. Net income under $250,000 includes the rich.
The reason Obama is out with the people, is because Washington backroom deals don't work because of lobbyists and money special interests.
