Now the real hurdle comes. Passing the House with all but 8 Republicans voting for and all but 5 Democrats voting against the newest measure is going to the Senate. In my mind, there is no way that this passes the Senate. Democrats in the House such as Rep. Levin say that this bill seeks to undo to whole latter part of the 20th Century. Hmmmmmm...bold move there.
On the other hand we have the so-called "Gang of Six" Proposal. People like IP would be happy with the fact that this bill raises taxes on corporations (closing loopholes), the marginal rate would be REDUCED, and vast cuts to social welfare programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
