The Republican side of the House floor burst into laughter during President Barack Obama's big jobs speech on Thursday when he said his plan "isn't class warfare."
They also didn't take to kindly when President Obama name-dropped billionaire Warren Buffet, who he said "pays a lower tax rate than even his secretary -- an outrage he has asked us to fix."
"I mean, well yeah Warren Buffett, gimme' a break!" Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) later exclaimed. "I mean we find out his business is four billion in the rears [sic] on taxes, and he goes public and says 'hey I'm all for more taxes, I don't pay enough taxes.' Pay what you owe, how about that! Four billion dollars -- think about what that could do, the jobs that could provide, and the money could be applied towards the deficit."
Too bad there’s no video clip. I sure didn’t watch the speech, and don’t intend to, but I’d watch that clip.
Both parties supported the bailout. They’re both for class warfare.
Nice to hear, since I refused to watch. Republicans sound like they know Hussein is swinging at the air....
Don’t ask me why, but I watched....and I definitely heard the laughter!
Music to my ears. I wish I'd heard it. Sometimes I think laughter is the only effective response to the blathering of liberals.
I watched too. It was bizarre...and did you see that painful look on Moochelle’s face?
Hypocrites on parade last night - Jeff Immelt from GE was sitting by the first Vacation Lady even though GE as a bailout recipient paid no taxes, and since 2000 has moved 20% of their jobs overseas - of course he is on BOs job panel
Well alinsky says to ridicule and laugh at your opponent.
Really it’s the only thing that riles a libtard up is to laugh at him/her.
"He is so good. I don't need sound, I can just sit there and admire how good he is at going back and forth," Gohmert said. "He's an incredibly gifted reader."
That's just the way she looks.
Four billion dollars — think about what that could do, the jobs that could provide,...
This fool, Gomer, is as dumb as the rest. Buffet’s back taxes, four billion more paid to the government, would “provide” about 13 paper-shuffle dolittle pencil-ready new government jobs for about 2 years, and bonuses and efficiency-award conference junkets for those new jobs’ several dozen supervisors and managers.
How can we encourage the GOP to show some spine when we don't even give them credit when they do?
good for Gohmert...the GOP should be hammering Buffett on this.
No you dont. Here is a recap. Pass it now. Jobs jobs jobs. Pass it now. Jobs pass it now. Teachers, union construction Jobs pass it now.
Hey congress I don’t have how to pay for this in the plan could you take care of that little detail.
Jobs jobs jobs. Pass it now.
I would wipe my arse with obama but the threat of aids is just to damned high.
The sad thing is that they have all forgotten about the 35% tax that Buffet’s corporations pay on their profits before distributing the dividends and capital gains that are taxed at an additional 15%.
