Tennessee Republicans Voted 100% to Raise Taxes for Tennessee Families

Monday,every Tennessee Republican in Congress turned their backs on working families in Tennessee and voted against extending a payroll tax cut for the middle class.

Earlier the Senate passed a bill that would extend the payroll tax cut for two months with the support of even many staunch Republicans including Sen. Lamar Alexander.

Republicans (Teabaggers) in the U.S. House buried the Senate bill, saying they prefer a year-long extension instead. They were willing to raise taxes on the middle class to take a cheap punch at President Obama.

Your following Tennessee Repubican Congressmen voted 100% to add an additional $1,000 tax burden to your family, let your Tennessee Republicans know how much you appreciate their betrayal.

Congressman: PHIL ROE, (202) 225-6356
Congressman: JOHN DUNCAN, JR., (202) 225-5435
Congressman: CHUCK FLEISCHMANN, (202) 225-3271
Congressman: SCOTT DESJARLAIS, (202) 225-6831
Congresswoman: DIANE BLACK, (202) 225-4231
Congresswoman: MARSHA BLACKBURN, (202) 225-2811
Congressman: STEPHEN FINCHER, (202) 225-4714

After a week of blistering attacks from President Obama, Senate Republicans, The conservative Washington Post, Senate and Congressional Democrats, the leadership has agreed to fast track a vote. The leadership caved moments ago and have agreed to back the two month extension that will prevent tax increases for 160 million middle class Americans. A vote is expected friday.

Teabaggers are outraged about the change of heart of the leadership. They claim they were thrown under a Kentucky bus because Mitchell (minority leader of the Senate) sided with the democrats.

It is amazing the “low” level Republicans will stoop to undermine President Obama. They have proven repeatedly this year that they will even sink the nation if it achieves their goal of defeating President Obama.

It is no suprise our economy struggles while our do nothing congress plays games with the lives of the middle class. It is becoming more apparent that the 2012 elections will be an election of two clear choices: President Obama or the do nothing Republican Party!

It is ashame the Republicans won’t fight for the middle class like they will for their rich friends. It takes money to buy favor. It is also ashame the GOP is willing to sink the nation if it sinks President Obama!
