Will Democrats Try To Attach Amnesty For Illegals To Extending Tax Cuts?

November 22, 2010 7:22 pm 0 comments

Reports out of Washington are that efforts to extend the Bush tax cuts have stalled setting the stage for the largest tax increase in American history on January 1, 2011. According to Bloomberg, the average family would owe an additional $2,600 to Uncle Sam’s coffers if an agreement cannot be reached.

At the request of Republicans, talks have been rescheduled until after the Thanksgiving holiday which will leave law maker’s precious little time to strike a deal.

Predictably we’re hearing that extending the tax cuts will add further to the deficit, when in fact, every time taxes have been cut, receipts to the treasury have increased. Senator Mary Landrieu went to the Democrat playbook and played the class warfare card saying that she opposed financing tax cuts for high-income taxpayers with deficits.

Michigan Republican David Camp predicts that the issue will be delayed until next year, and if that happens, Republicans will push to make the tax cuts retroactive. Of course this will do little to soothe the nerves of already anxious small business owners who still do not know what their tax burden will be for 2011.

My prediction is that Democrats will attempt to attach legislation such as the Dream Act to extending the tax cuts in an effort to reach, what they believe, is a quid pro quo arrangement with Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid resorted to this tactic prior to the midterm election when he attached not only the Dream Act to a defense appropriations bill but also a repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.

We already know that Democrats will resort to the lowest forms of political chicanery to pass their radical agenda; is there any reason to expect they won’t do the same now? Especially in light of the fact that many outgoing lawmakers will be looking to go out with a bang.

Perhaps it will be best for everyone if the vote is put off until after the New Year but I doubt that President Obama will want to do this. It is in the president’s best political interest to extend the tax cuts this year even though they go against everything he stands for. If the president can foster a deal to extend the tax cuts, he’ll look like the knight in shining armor who saved the day which would go a long way to improving his dismal approval rating.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
