Thought you'd like to know.
PS: Republicans voted to merely extend President Bush's tax cuts rather than enshrining them into law -- I'm NOT satisfied!
UPDATE: I'll say it: George Voinovich is completely out of touch with Ohio voters.
The Plain Dealer's Openers blog makes a good point:
Would the Ohio Republican Party ever accuse one of its own, GOP Sen. George Voinovich, of voting to raise the taxes of hardworking Ohio citizens? It's more than doubtful.
Yet the party might have set itself up to look foolish -- shall we say hypocritical? -- by jeering congressmen Sherrod Brown (the Democratic candidate for U.S. senator) and Ted Strickland (the Democratic candidate for governor) after they voted against a $70 billion federal tax cut in the U.S. House yesterday.
This is what Ohio Republican Chairman Bob Bennett said in a statement after the House vote: "Ted Strickland and Sherrod Brown are completely out of touch with Ohio voters. More money in the pockets of Ohio families gives them the opportunity to make needed purchases or put some money away in savings. Either way, tax cuts help boost Ohio's economy and improve the lives of Ohio families."
When a squish like Mike DeWine is to the right of you, you know that you've lost touch with reality.
