The brunt of the new tax burden will fall on job creators, the successful small business owners who are responsible for creating as many as 70% of the jobs in our economy.
This is the first time in 20 years that Republicans have enabled passage of a bill that raises income taxes. It was opposed by 151 Republicans in the House.
Speaker Boehner insisted that this bill receive a vote, despite the fact that it was opposed almost 2-1 by the members of his own caucus. Fox News radio commentator Todd Starnes Tweeted out this analysis: "Boehner leads Democrats to victory in House."
