A tweet from Grover Norquist:
The Bush tax cuts lapsed at midnight last night. Every R voting for Senate bill is cutting taxes and keeping his/her pledge.
Oh dear God! After all this. Give me a break. This guy can turn anything into a win.
Is this not the zenith of hypocrisy? Where are the ATTA BOYS? What are the details of the new deal that has been passed?
Where are capital gains and dividends? Any details, folks?
Some stats from NYTimes.com:
The measure, brought to the House floor less than 24 hours after its passage in the Senate, was approved 257 to 167, with 85 Republicans joining 172 Democrats in voting to allow income taxes to rise for the first time in two decades, in this case for the highest-earning Americans. Voting no were 151 Republicans and 16 Democrats.
