Congressman Peter Welch has written a letter to Speaker Pelosi opposing President Obama's deal with the Republicans to extend tax breaks for the rich. Welch is quoted as saying the tax cuts should be extended to middle-class taxpayers, and not wealthy ones.
I called David Price's DC office just now and was told that David had signed this letter.
Let us all congratulate Congressman Price for his courage and for his true Democratic principals.
Thank heavens for this
Where are NC's other Congressional folks?
Are Brad Miller, Mel Watt, G.K. Butterfield, or others on the letter?
A pleasant surprise and a new hope that there might be...
some Dems with a spine. This bill should certainly be re-done, and if I had a say, we would go back to the top tax rates at the time of the last 'decent' Republican, Eisenhower!
