GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert thanks Dems for defending Bush tax cuts

Immediately after Democrat leaders gushed over themselves tonight for protecting the middle class by supporting the Senate fiscal cliff bill, GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert took 15 seconds to use their own words and point out a bittersweet irony:

Rep. Gohmert isn’t the only one making the point:

    2 huge thumbs up for Rep. Gohmert!

  • Dick Beninya

    Mic Drop!

  • George Washington Mclintock

    That’s a big political victory, as Barry Hussein repeatedly stated that he was re-elected to take those tax cuts out, but will our Republican politicians be savvy enough to make that point known and embarrass the dog eater in chief? I’m not optimistic.

    Backmail works. Obama won this one but we don’t owe him any favors! No to any of his proposals.

    Too bad it’s about 10 years too late. I don’t think a single republican made a serious effort to point out the dem hypocrisy on this issue at all during this entire debate. I mean, are you kidding me? Obama just got re-elected, in part, by arguing that the Bush tax cuts caused the recession, and ever since his re-election, he and the dems have argued that we must preserve these tax cuts to avoid another recession. And he actually got away with it virtually unchallenged then and now. And we wonder why we keep losing the debate, lol. Pathetic.

    I was waiting for someone to say that. Stupid Dems.

    • Booker

      Funny thing is that they are still going to be called the Bush tax cuts.

    Yes, for years we heard the loony lefties in Congress wail about the “Bush tax cuts for the rich”, even though they couldn’t possibly believe that the tax rates established in EGTRRA and JGTRRA were beneficial only to those in the highest tax brackets. Yet none of those same lefties contradicted President O’Bonehead when he said that the expiration of the Bush tax cuts would result in an increase in taxes to the middle class of $2,000 or more. If the original legislation only benefited the rich, how could the sunsetting of the legislation be harmful to the middle class? Dems should have been lambasted with this at every possible opportunity during the 2012 election season.
