Quotation for Today: Principle-Based, Self-Serving Republicans

The quotation for today highlights how Republicans' self-serving view of middle- and work-class Americans.

"I'm disappointed in leadership. The freshman class came to change Washington, to make it more principle-based. But this [compromise to provide tax relief to 160 million middle- and working-class Americans] is just more of the same decision-making based on political expediency."
Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas)
I'm happy to be a member of the group that most people view as the strength of America, but that Republican Representative Tim Huelskamp thinks of as expediencies.  

Republican Representative Tim Huelskamp of Kansas -- whose plan to block the tax cut was thwarted --  was one of many Republicans with self-serving motives.
