The Democrats have decided to end their alleged work in Washington a few weeks early so they can go home to campaign for the upcoming elections.
And that had to be a tough call to make, because they can't campaign on the things they've done in the past...and apparently, they don't want to campaign on what they intend to do in the near future: enabling a huge across-the-board tax hike during an economic downturn.
The higher taxes are currently scheduled to hit every taxpayer, from the lowest bracket to the highest. There will a greater "marriage penalty," a huge "death tax," and a big cut in deductions for dependent children. And small businesses, often described as the "engine of job growth" in our nation, will be taking it in the teeth...leaving them less money and less incentive to hire anyone in the foreseeable future.
The tax hikes are set to take place automatically unless our representatives in Washington vote to prevent it. Unfortunately, no such vote can take place when there's nothing in the Senate chamber except the huge cloud of dust kicked up by Democrats leaving their sinking ship.
