These eight Republican member of the United States House of Representatives voted for what could become the biggest tax increase in U.S. history. Their votes were very likely the decisive votes in what was a short but spirited battle in the House.
We are now bracing for what will be a major contest in the United States Senate where, at this time, it appears the monsterous Tax and Trade bill will be defeated. However if any Republican senators feel the need to trade with the enemy in a time of war they will be posted also.

This is the quote I wanted to give you yesterday, I just forgot:

I experienced a bit of long-overdue silence, and what came to me was this: Life is, and always has been, a struggle. The fishing pole bends heavier for some than others, and nobody has yet to figure out why -- just as you never know, when you make a cast, if what attacks your fly is a finger-size baby snapper or a tiger shark that can turn you into bait. Still, we struggle with the rod just the same. Life to me is like a fish on the line. When it is there, you feel it. You fight it. You gain line. You lose line. But if that line suddenly snaps, or the pole breaks, or a thousand other problems occur that fishermen use as excuses when the tension is gone, you feel it even more. --Jimmy Buffett, A Salty Piece of Land, page 425

I may be stealing that image from you first thing this morning!
These eight Republicans need to be held accountable next year by their voters.
