House Dems say no to Obama
There are signs of courage in Yellowville


House Democrats voted Thursday to reject Obama's insane capitulation tax deal with Republicans
in its current form, but it was unclear how significantly the package might need to be changed.

Democrats passed a resolution saying the tax package should not come to the House floor for consideration
as written, even though no formal House bill has been drafted. Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., introduced the resolution.

Said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas: "If it's take it or leave it, we'll leave it."

Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., said "it's a pretty clear message. We don't like the bill."

The vote will at least temporarily stall what had seemed to be a grudging Democratic movement
toward the tax package. Before the caucus vote took place, Henny Stoyer said Obama's tax compromise
embodies "the objective we need to reach" even though Democrats dislike several components.

"We're going to have an increase in taxes on working Americans ... if we continue to have gridlock,"
Stoyer, a Maryland Democrat, said on MSNBC.

But the the voice vote in the caucus was quite lopsided. Rep. Shelley Berkley of Nevada
told reporters afterward that "one person voted against it. That would be me."

Asked what happens next, Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, the No. 3 person
in the Democratic leadership, said, "I don't know. Well wait and see."

I hate to see Obama further weakened, but somebody had to do something.
It's sickening to watch a president grovel and kiss the asses of lessers.

What comes next?
The Democrats should tell Bitch and Boner to go fuck themselves.
The public is SOUNDLY against tax cuts for the super-rich.

If the mad dogs refuse to deal, Obama (or a Democrat with courage) could call for
people to empty into the streets if they think the super-rich have been pampered enough.

100,000 people in the streets of New York,
Los Angeles. and Chicago.
100,000 people in the streets of Atlanta, Baltimore and Seattle.
100,000 people in the streets of Boston, Dallas and Phoenix.

It would be a message too powerful to ignore.
Even the FOX News bastards would have to cover that - and what could they say?

If our president refuses to grip reality, he may need some help.

Matter of fact, what Obama needs to do is join Marc Perkel's  Church of Reality.
