LoninPa should know that Orwell's 1984 rings true here. Big brother re-writes history to suit themselves.

The problem with the historical rewrite is that there is nobody to whom the public will listen that will remind said public of the democrat filibuster, indeed there are many to whom the public listens that will state without qualification that the republicans were in charge and that's what they passed...if they even give anyone credit for any of it.

What Ransom, pretty much alone, seems to have missed is that the Democrats don't have to vote for a tax hike bill. The Republicans voted for one 12 years ago (extended by a compromise for two years) and it will go into effect in January. The Democrats only plan on passing...
