Republicans block "Buffet Rule" debate

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

That's right, not just the rule, but even debating the rule was blocked by the GOP. The Party of No is doing what it does best and ignores the overwhelming support for the Buffet Rule among the public. What are the Republicans afraid of besides losing control of the debate that they know enjoys broad support?

It's interesting to see that when there's a tax out there on the poor that might generate a few million dollars, it's a big deal for the GOP but when it's a tax that generates billions, suddenly, the number is insignificant. Why is it so consistently difficult for the Republicans to stand up for middle class Americans?
