Dems Defeat GOP Plan to Actually Cut Tax Rates

A GOP addendum to the spending bill that would have reduced mortgage rates and cut the tax rates in the lowest two income brackets was deemed too "expensive" to Democrats.

OK. Too expensive to let Americans who actually pay taxes get to participate in this boondoggle. Too expensive even though it's our money. Too expensive even though the Dems want to flush $1 trillion down the drain to their favorite liberal interest groups. The bill that would have been a pile of dung with a cherry on top just had the cherry removed. Now the GOP will have a clean conscience when they vote it down.
