It is a foregone conclusion the vote today in the House was a trial run for the real thing. Everyone is calling it a political vote. I suppose anything could be looked at in that manner, whether it makes the President's desk or not. It is a perfectly acceptable method to put forward a bill for a vote to allow the electorate to know how their elected officials are voting. The vote today was for the benefit of the electorate, not Mr. Boner or Mr. King. It simply shows how completely moronic these men have become for the sake of politics. They are a slave to the politics and are unable to govern. In case there are a majority of Republicans and Tea Baggers that don't understand this DEMOCRATIC method of passing legislation, let me explain. My pleasure, sincerely.
This is the time when the electorate of a House Representative can call, write or email their elected offical and let them know what they think. So, Mr. King and Mr. Boner voted "NO." If their constituency, their electorate thought they made a BAD decision, this is their time to act in a democratic way as an individual to let them know how they see things.
Got it now? The RHETORICAL Republicans and Tea Baggers are completely blind sided by their OBSESSION with politics over governing. This House vote is important. It changes the tax structure the majority of Americans will pay for the rest of their lives. This is NOT a minor vote. The Middle Class of the USA on occassion will move into a wealthy 'status,' however, they usually earn their income for all their lives. The vote in the House is about them and will effect them and their children permanently. It would be remiss of the House leadership to ignore the importance of a 'preliminary' vote before the final vote was conducted.
It is completely SAD and totally pathetic that 'Chicken Shit' Boner and Steve King can't see that and actually see this vote as a joke. I have to wonder if they see their electorate the same way.
