Pelosi Says Tax Cut Vote Possible Before Election

Washington, D.C. (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't ruling out a
vote to extend soon-to-expire tax cuts before lawmakers go home to
campaign in the next week or two, even though Senate Democrats have
abandoned plans to vote before the Nov. 2 election.
President Barack Obama has been pushing for a vote by year's end
to extend middle-class tax cuts. But House Democrats -- much like
Senate Democrats -- are divided over whether to vote on the measure
before the election.
The most sweeping tax cuts in a generation, enacted in 2001 and
2003, are due to expire in January. Republicans want to extend all
the tax cuts. Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress want to
extend them for individuals making less than $200,000 and married
couples making less than $250,000.

    I would pay a higher tax just to get rid of Allen Boyd! His TV ads are the worst of all campaign ads. I would like to hear the full sentences that he cuts up for negative sentences against Southerland. Remember in November -- vote against Boyd!

    This is not a tax cut....Bush did that. This is to stop a tax increase. Get your facts straight Pelosi

    Why is it liberals harp on what Bush has done but whe Pelosi, Reid , and Obama go out to pasture nobody gives a rats behind. On the broader scheme of things; they are just not that important.

    Obama, Reid, Pelosi, are Liars, when will they stop lying to the American people? The same LIES over and over and thinking people actually believe their LIES is just unbelievable. THEY NEED TO "SHUT UP" and go stick their ugly heads in the toilet and maybe that will break them from the habit of telling LIES.

    The seven most feared words in the English language. "I'm from the government, I'm here to help!" While we need the cuts extended, if they are voted on before January they probably won't be.
