Oh, and BTW... If the Republicans think voting “present” is going to get them off the hook for raising taxes, they have another thing coming!

We sent them to Congress to control taxes. They get no credit if they refuse to do their damn jobs! Voting present might as well be an “AYE” vote, as far as I am concerned.

In fact, I would respect a Congresscritter who actually voted AYE more than I would somebody who took the easy way out by voting “Present”. If the Republicans take this approach, I am one TeaPartier who will never support them again.

They should just pass an extension of the Bush Tax Cuts for 4 years and go home for Christmas. Let Obama be the one who raises taxes on everyone. Voting present? Typical of them that they would do something that they’ve criticized Obama for doing.
