The Senate just finished voting on the Obama/GOP tax deal. It passed as expected.

The vote was 81-19.

Temporary tax relief, permanent entitlements.

On to the House.

Flashback:

12/6: Deal with the devil: Temporary across-the-board tax relief for more endless jobless benefits

11/5: Voters speak – No to soak-the-rich schemes

Republicans must stop allowing the White House to demonize America’s entrepreneurs and producers. By continuing to refer to them as beneficiaries of the “Bush tax cuts” instead of as the besieged victims of Obama tax increases, the GOP cedes the moral high ground. It’s time to make the White House own its noxious war on wealth.
