    WARSHINGTON, DC – Banana Republicans in the House of Representatives of the Very Rich voted today to make sure their wealthiest contributors can hang on to low tax rates after they sell the stock they gave themselves as Christmas bonuses last year, while pocketing the dividends they made from stocks they acquired this year. The five year, $56 billion giveaway matched almost dollar for dollar the budget cuts approved a few weeks ago which gutted Medicare, student loans, education and food stamps. “These extensions are necessary to assure that Republican campaign contributions and bribery payments continue, because they are essential to the support of our long-term goal, the economic crucifixion of the middle and lower classes; and anyone who questions these tax cuts is supporting the terrorists and Saddamites," President MORON’s budget office director said in a statement. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, had a few words for the Bananas, stating, "Everybody loses under this bill. Everybody, that is, except the top one-fifth of 1 percent, some might call them the super-rich. Apparently, the majority calls them donors."

    it is just another picture of the morally corrupt republican party.

    they do this, again. they did it before,

    and the numbnut "so-called" conservatives heads are too far up their butts, to see.
    It is pathetic for the republicans to sabotage federal budget and spending like this, and it is pathetic these lowlifes on this forum can be so immoral to support them.

    you guys are scum.impotent scum.

    Ya know, ac. I somewhat agree that you should not have to pay school taxes. After all, you apparently never took advantage of the education system.
