Seeking to paint Republicans as guardians of the rich, Senate Democrats are forcing a vote Saturday on extending the Bush tax cuts to only the middle class â€“ a defeat that is inevitable as negotiations between the White House and Republicans for a compromise continues.
But Democrats, already eyeing the 2012 elections, want to use this showdown to weaken a resurgent GOP.
“All those people out there in the Tea Party that are angry about the economics of Washington, they really need to look at this,” Sen. Claire McCaskill., D-Mo., said Friday as Democrats took turns pummeling Republicans.
“They need to pull back the curtain and realize that you’ve got a Republican Party that’s not worried about the people in the Tea Party,” said McCaskill, who will be on the ballot next year. “They’re worried about people that can’t decide which home to go to over the Christmas holidays.”
Republicans dismissed the attacks as the last gasp of a Democratic Party that lost its majority in the House in midterm elections, surrendered several seats in the Senate and will be forced to share power beginning in January.
“All of this finger-pointing is doing nothing to create jobs,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “It’s a total waste of time.”
