Dennis Kucinich voted for the Bush tax cuts that are already being cited by the next speaker of the House as justification to privatize Social Security. Alan Grayson voted against it.
“Earlier in the evening, on the only amendment voted on, the House rejected a change to the estate tax which would have lowered the exemption from $5 million to $3.5 million, and increased the rate from 35% to 45%.” David Dayen
“Stopping all the tax hikes is a good first step in our efforts to reduce the uncertainty family-owned small businesses are facing, but much more needs to be done, including cutting spending, permanently eliminating the threat of job-killing tax hikes, and repealing the job-killing health care law,” Boehner, House speaker-designate, said in a prepared statement.” John Boehner
Remember what Dennis said when he came out for the Obama care insurance bailout bill? “I did it to support the president’s agenda“. This was just 3 days after he went on television and honestly told the people of this country that the health-care bill was “worse than doing nothing” because ultimately it would hurt working Americans.
Well, I guess Dennis Kucinich really does want to support the president’s neoliberal corporatist agenda no matter what damage it does to the people of the country.
Fuck you Dennis Kucinich. Just.. fuck you, you sell-out piece of shit.
