Last week, we learned that top Democrats in Congress like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their close friends are financially maxing out to Tammy Duckworth in an attempt to take out Joe Walsh. Now we have learned that President Obama himself is targeting Joe, the leading conservative voice among the Tea Party.
Once again, today he showed why they want him out so badly as he voted to proceed with the full year payroll tax extension, not the short-term solution offered by the Senate. This vote, like all the others he has cast since elected, shows his commitment to lower taxes. This bill ensures that Americans will continue to receive a $1000 tax cut in the coming year, not the $167 outlined in the Senate bill.
