Chickenshit cowards. There is nothing else to say. Most Americans support their position. The GOP will continue to obfuscate and lie about the 'small business' canard.
Instead, win or lose the vote, the Democrats could have got the GOP on record as voting against middle class tax cuts. Let the GOP filibuster. Force them st stay in the Senate filibustering until the election if needs be. It was the perfect opportunity to show the country just who the GOP really cares about.
They say they will being it up for a vote after the elections in the lame duck session. How pathetic is that?
