Dude, do you not remember the the last two years? Republicans held unemployment checks hostage to continue the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. Republicans held the whole nation's economy hostage to oppose a single tax hike to the wealthy during the Republican-manufactured debt ceiling pseudocrisis.
And now here is a tax cut expiring and suddenly it's fair game to talk about just how it will affect the economy? This after we've been TRYING to get it through to the Republicans that these falsely labeled "job creator" wealthy folks are NOT putting the money saved from their tax cuts back into the economy at anywhere close to the same rate that the poor and middle classes do. This after a DECADE of trying to explain that the tax cuts to the wealthy are not efficient whatsoever in helping the economy--only to have Republicans shout "class warfare" and other nonsense as they desperately aim to preserve tax cuts for the richest 1%.
AND NOW THEY FUCKING HAVE THE HUBRIS TO OPPOSE CONTINUING A TAX CUT THAT AFFECTS THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS?
Fuck that. And fuck your standing up for their hypocrisy.
