Dingy Harry Reid’s “tax the rich” sham bill fails in the Senate 51-49
The so called “tax the rich” Marxist Democrat scheme can’t even pass the Democrat controlled Senate. Dingy Harry Reid’s bill failed 51-49 in the Senate, with two Democrats voting against. Of course, these Democrats are those phony “blue dog” Democrats up for re-election next year (Ben Nelson and Mark Pryor.) The Hill begins their story with “Senate Republicans” voting against Dingy Reid’s bill. At the very bottom of the story, they mention the two Democrats. Another phony, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch who is suddenly a conservative (since he’s up for re-election in 2012) destroyed Democratic leadership over the resolution last Wednesday, claiming it was a cheap stunt.
“The leadership in the Senate offered a nonbinding resolution designed solely to score some cheap political points that will jazz up the activist left to demagogic class warfare against individuals with high incomes,” Hatch warned. “I guarantee you, if we raise taxes, my friends on the other side will spend every dime of it.”
