The Dumbest Dozen

Newsnm note (Spence) the following U.S. Senators win the prize for being the most conspicuous collection of clowns to ever draw air in the U.S. Capitol. They are Senators: Akaka (D-HI), Durbin (D-IL), Harkin (D-IA), Inouye (D-HI), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Leahy (D-VT), Levin (D-MI), Mikulski (D-MD), Murray (D-WA), Reid (D-NV), Sanders (I-VT), Schumer (D-NY). This is the dozen that actually voted against repealing the absurd 1099 rule that was snuck into the Obamacare law. Voters living in these states should not wait for the next senate election. They should begin re-call proceedings against these people immediately. These people are not capable of voting intelligently on decisions affecting our nation.
(Reuters) - Bowing to pressure from business groups worried about an avalanche of paperwork, the U.S. Senate voted on Tuesday to rescind a tax-reporting requirement included in last year's healthcare overhaul law. With bipartisan support, the Senate voted 87-12 to pass legislation sponsored by Republican Senator Mike Johanns that repeals a requirement for businesses and landlords to file a Form 1099 document with the Internal Revenue Service for purchases of goods and services exceeding $600 a year. The tax filing requirement did not directly relate to healthcare but was intended to help pay for the healthcare law that is considered one of President Barack Obama's top legislative achievements. The legislation earlier was passed by the House of Representatives and now goes to Obama, who is expected to sign it into law. Read full story here: News New Mexico
