Typical House Republican blaming the Senate and President. He makes it sound like the President wants tax hikes for everybody. Obama only wants the EXACT same thing Romney campaigned on - removing some tax loopholes for the very rich. Allowing a billionaire to take off $100,000 on his multi-million dollar yacht while we are afraid to cross our bridges that are in deplorable conditions makes no sense. Same old story - Romney's loopholes - the Republicans were for it before they were against it. (Against it now that Obama is for it).

Mr Reed knows that it's the stubborn and inflexible radical right wing of his party that is standing in the way of progress on this issue. They are serving their true constituency, the wealthy elite, who they need to fund their future campaigns for public office. Mr Reed knows that he has to spend 4 to 6 hours a day raising money for his own and his party's political campaigns and that the rich who can give large amounts cut this "begging time" down so guess who gets his attention when there are issues affecting them out there?

I appreciate Mr Reed's yes vote on the fully inclusive Violence Against All Women Act (VAWA) but I have to stand against him and his party for the obstructionism they continue to place in the way of progress for the majority of the American people.
