Indeed, no Republican voted for the motion to recommit, which also included a millionaire surtax meant to pay for the extension of the payroll tax cut, and it failed, 183-244.

    Should be Majority Leader Cantor, not Minority Leader. Well, maybe not on this issue, but whatever.

    I’m disappointedin Walz for voting for the abominable snow bill. No doubt following in Colin Peterson’s footsteps and voting republican in order to pander to Kochs or agribusiness or, who knows who else. Unfortunately for both, at some point Truman’s truism will kick in, and the choice between a republican and a democrat who acts like one won’t be so hard to make.
