It didn't take long for Republicans to break a promise in their new "Pledge to America" to "give small business tax deductions," Democrats charged this afternoon.
Four hours after the GOP rolled out its new campaign manifesto, a bill containing $12 billion in tax cuts for small business passed on a 237-187 vote in the House. Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) was the lone Republican to vote for the measure.
"By breaking one of their top pledges within hours of making it, Republicans proved that you can put as much stock into their promises as you can a promise made at a Lindsay Lohan probation hearing," snapped Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan.
