Boehner: Listening To The American People?

All we heard from Speaker of the House-Elect Foster Brooks after the election was how they were going to "listen to the American people" and "do the people's work."

Well, listen up, Boehner:

According to a new CBS News poll... 53 percent of Americans want the Bush-era tax cuts extended only for households earning less than $250,000 per year. That roughly matches the proposal put forth by the White House, which wants to extend the cuts only for incomes less than $250,000 for families and $200,000 for individuals... Another 14 percent of Americans say the cuts should expire for all Americans.
That's a total of 67% who'd rather have the tax cuts expire for the top 2% of income earners. What do you say, Boehner? How about you, Mitch "Mr. Limpet" McConnell? Are you going to listen to the American people as you've repeated ad nauseam and extend the Bush tax cuts only for those under the $250,000 threshold?

I'm still waiting for someone on the Sunday talking heads to ask these clowns that very same question but I'm not holding my breathe

Considering the poll just came out this week, I imagine it WILL be asked this Sunday.
