Alan Grayson Points Out the Obvious, They Want Billionaire Tax Bonuses Because They'll Make Out like Bandits [Anthony McCarthy]

Republicans, blue dogs and just about every media figure you're likely to see will make out like bandits if the tax cuts are continued for income more than a quarter of a million dollars a year.

Alan Grayson gave a too little remarked on speech on the floor of the house where he goes from Rush Limbaugh who will get an additional $2.7 million dollar tax bonus if Obama caves in to Republicans on the billionaire's tax bonus to those who will make a mere $100,000 + dollars.

Watch his presentation, it's one of the best speeches made on the floor of the House all year.

It might not have worked in the conservative Florida district that didn't reelect him, but I'm certain his style of telling the simple truth that people can understand would work in many other if not most districts in the country.
