The GOP refused to end federal subsidies for ethanol because they all signed the Grover Norquist pledge to never raise taxes under any circumstance, and they said that ending the federally funded subsidy on corn grown for bio-fuel would essentially be a tax increase, although they didn't say how. But now that President Obama wants to continue the payroll holiday tax cuts that benefit 46% of American workers, people like you and me, who go to work everyday and pay our taxes, the GOP is going to block this extention and try to demand that the tax cut for us ends, which means that you and I will be paying more taxes, a tax increase, on our hard earned paychecks. It is abundantly clear to me, and anyone else who has half a brain, that they will fight tooth and nail to keep the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans, a program that was supposed to expire after ten years, because it is unfunded and costs America billions of dollars in lost revenue, but when the tax cuts effect you and I, the poor working men and women, they will ignore the Grover Norquist pledge they signed and stick it to us again and again. The GOP is not for the little guy, never was, and never will be, so dont be fooled by their lies anymore. Wake up, and see them for what they really are. Hypocrites!
