4. This Is Political Theatre, Nothing More, Nothing Less

Cantor, not Boehner, has announced a vote on this for Thursday. No Committee hearings, no CBO score, no input from Democrats. It is one big PR stunt being played out as political theatre and the media should cover it as such. All they are trying to do is to get Democrats on record as voting against a tax cut extension for the bottom 1%. Note, Boehner's Plan B allows the payroll tax cut holiday to expire so it is a tax increase for all Americans with a job, fails to address unemployment benefits for the long term unemployed and a number of other items that need to be addressed. We don't need symbolic gestures in the theatre of the absurd but meaningful, serious proposals and this just laughs in the face of that.
