Tell House Democrats to Vote Against the Obama/GOP Tax Bill

Posted by libhom Tuesday, December 14, 2010

If you don't like tax cuts for the rich and tax increases for the poor, here's one of your last chances to fight against Barack Bush's tax deal with his fellow Republicans. Firedog Lake Action sent an email asking for help with getting a whip count to find out how many "Democrats" support this travesty. From that email:

The millionaires in the Senate voted yesterday for a bill that will give the richest 2% of the country - including themselves - a huge tax break. But one in three middle class workers could actually see their taxes go UP as a result of the Obama-GOP tax plan.

A vote could happen in the House as soon as tomorrow - we barely have any time to stop this. But here's how I think we can do it.

It's Nancy Pelosi's obligation to refuse to bring major legislation like this up for a vote unless a majority of the Democratic caucus supports the bill, as she already agreed not to do. So we're organizing an EMERGENCY whip count to call Democratic Members of Congress and find out where they stand on the Obama-GOP tax plan.

Can you call Democratic Members of Congress and ask if they support Speaker Pelosi if she proceeds with the Obama-GOP tax plan? It's critical to stopping this $900 billion giveaway to the rich.Click here to start calling in our tax cut whip count:

Please help with the whip count. If you can't call during the day, please leave a message on that Congresscritter's machine asking her or him to vote against this bullshit...in kinder and gentler words of course...or not.

  1. Christopher Says:
  2. The Dumbos will help deliver the tax cut deal to President Pootie Tang and in the process, short the Social Security Trust Fund by $120 billion, requiring additional Fed borrowing to make up the shortage.

    This idiot president must be impeached in 2011. Let Biden finish his term.

    At least Biden won't do as much harm as President Pootie Tang.
