Steny Hoyer Thinks You Are an Idiot

July 30, 2010

"Yep! Bush's plan all along was to raise your taxes!" - These rubes will believe anything! - "We're going to fix it, because we're not irresponsible spenders like the Republicans." - heh heh... suckers!

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer had this to say about the upcoming expiration of the Bush Tax Cuts for the WealthyTM :

We have no intention of allowing the Republican tax increase — that their policies would lead to — to go into effect for working Americans. Period… We’re going to act and make sure that the Republican phase out and increase in taxes does not end as they provided for in the laws they passed.

Does Rep. Steny Hoyer really expect us to believe that the Democrats have been for tax cuts all along, but the Republicans under George W. Bush would only agree if the tax cuts had an expiration date?  Yes he does.  He thinks American citizens are a bunch of idiots.  Why else would he publicly state such a ridiculous lie?

The House Democrats under his leadership consistently supported the repeal of the entirety of the Bush tax cut legislation.  It was because of Democratic opposition that the tax cuts have an expiration date.  The only way Congress was able to get it to President Bush’s desk was through the Budget Resolution process, which requires expiration dates.  The House Dems even passed a Federal Budget Plan in 2009 that specifically required the expiration of the Bush Tax Cuts.

It’s odd that they were so dedicated to a Federal Budget in 2009, but decided not to pass any budget at all in 2010.

    That is exactly the point. The entire Democrat platform is about “taking care” of people because they are too stupid to do it themselves. The problem is that Democrat politicians only take care of themselves and spit on everyone else.

    Judging by the number of times he has been reelected by Maryland, you may have a point. This Maryland voter will be voting against him again, and just maybe Maryland will wake up and join me this time. They have promised after the November election cap and trade , Amnesty and more bailouts for everyone, with the exception of you or I.
