2. Duh? If they extend the Obama tax cuts, what leverage would Democrats have?
(Bush tax cuts expired under their own terms on December 31, 2010, when Bush had less than no ability to extend them. Continuing to refer to them as Bush tax cuts is inaccurate. The tax cuts we have labored under since January 1, 2011 were a product of a deal that Obama cut with McConnell, to the chagrin of Democratic Senators, though they disgracefully rubber stamped it anyway.)

Sorry, I will not be using my vote to replacing anyone with a "progressive." I am sticking with the left, thanks.
