* Americans are incensed about the Republicans in the House of Representatives and their refusal to vote for and support the continuing tax cuts for the middle class. Speaker of the House John Boehner is clearly unable to lead, and as one pundit said on TV last night, might not survive his role of leader.

The House Republicans were presented with a one year extension of the pay roll tax cut, but they refused (see JoplinGlobe). Are they refusing because this tax cut was pushed by the President? These Republicans will do anything to hurt the middle class.  In the end, the GOP has hurt itself because they'd rather put politics before human beings.
