Paybacks Are A Bitch

From Huffington Post:

It's payback time on Capitol Hill.

Democrats rewarded the GOP for its near unanimous opposition Wednesday by ripping business tax cuts out of the final package, members of Congress said after a closed-door meeting to discuss the stimulus agreement reached with the Senate.

The Chamber of Commerce and other major business organizations lobbied for passage of the stimulus, but couldn't persuade a single House Republican or more than three Senate Republicans.
Since the House GOP voted unanimously against it the first time around, the Democrats didn't have to worry about losing any support. A tactical error by the Republicans.
