The republican party stands for one thing and one thing only. Low taxes. Where are they? Where is the simple bill to extend current tax rates permanently? Wouldn't it pass in the house? Send it to the senate, then it's out of their control. Am I missing something? As far as proganda goes, get in front of the people and say, "Obama is a tax and spend democrat, that's all he knows. We are fighting to keep rates at the current level. We've passed the bill and sent it to the democrat controlled senate. Let your senator know you are already taxed enough." Don't these guys ever watch tv?
