Republicans in the House of Representatives brought up for a vote yesterday legislation to repeal the tax. The repeal passed 270 to 146. Virtually every Republican voted for the repeal. They were joined by 37 Democrats, who broke with the White House on the issue.
Sadly, the repeal is likely to die in Harry Reid’s Senate, where most good ideas expire. Nonetheless, I hope the vote at least takes place. Every Senator should be forced to go on the record so that the voters understand the Democrats’ love of taxes and their war on American businesses.”
