If what Denny says is true...

...then I'm gonna sue whoever has been taking money out of my checks for the past, well, forever.

Well, folks, if you earn $40,000 a year and have a family of two, you don't pay any taxes. So you probably, if you don't pay any taxes, you are not going to get a big tax cut."

As Joe in DC says, maybe the Republicans don't know anyone who makes under $40,000...

And to Clyburn's credit, he pounced on this pretty well.

"To this point, I have been baffled by Republican budget and tax priorities that value millionaires and billionaires above working families, and sink this nation’s budget deeper in debt every year. But Speaker Hastert crystallized GOP budget philosophy—working families don’t pay taxes and don’t deserve a tax cut.

No statement has been more telling, arrogant and out of touch. Today’s narrow passage signals the need for change, because the Republican majority will stop at nothing to advance a fiscally reckless and immoral budget."
