Hoyer “Tax, Tax, Spend, Spend Democrat” Says No To Bush-Era Tax Cuts

House lawmakers won’t vote on an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts before the November midterm elections unless the Senate acts first.

“If the Senate can’t do anything, our position is clear. We don’t need to have a vote to let the American people know where we stand,” said Steny Hoyer (D-MD). Really, you sanctimonious bastard?

Hoyer’s comments cast serious doubt on whether there will be any congressional action on extending the tax cuts before lawmakers hit the campaign trails in advance of the Nov. 2 elections.

Without congressional action, the lower tax rates enacted during the Bush administration in 2001 and 2003 will expire at the end of the year.

Under the errand boy sent by grocery clerks’ regime, the unemployment rate has gone from 4.6 percent in January 2007 to 9.6 percent in August 2010.  More people are unemployed, with the numbers more than doubling, from 7 million in January 2007 to 14.9 million in August 2010. The federal budget deficit has exploded from what was an embarrassing $163 billion at the close of fiscal 2007 to an estimated $1.46 trillion for the fiscal year about to close on Sept. 30—an increase of nine times. New monthly bankruptcies have risen from 57,240 in January 2007 to 127,028 in August 2010. Our national debt has ballooned from just over $9 trillion at the end of fiscal 2007 to almost $13.5 trillion in less than three years.
