Now Boyda-Pelosi Taking Credit For Other People's Work

Nancy Boyda-Pelosi makes quite a big deal about passage of a bill she says she helped write. From her website:

In 2001, Congress expanded EITC eligibility by permitting military taxpayers to elect whether or not to include combat and other special pays in their earned income. The provision, which provided critical tax relief and support to military families, is set to expire on December 31, 2007.

Boyda said, "While I don’t understand the lack of previous, permanent action, I am proud to help say ‘thank you’ to our soldiers for their immense dedication. The HEART Act finally ends the Soldier Tax. It makes expanded EITC eligibility a permanent tax relief for our troops and their families.”

In 2001 Republicans passed this tax relief that DEMOCRATS refused to allow to be permanent. That's why there was no "previous, permanent action." Either you aren't smart enough to recognize that Democrats blocked it from being permanent, OR you're conveniently leaving the blame off of who deserves it.

I thought you'd be smarter than to point this out, seems to me this is an example of a truely independent congresswoman. I know you're used to Jim Ryun, but sometimes people criticize things their own party did. It doesn't make them stupid or hypocritical, it means they're above politics.

She didn't criticize her party (she said she didn't know why this hadn't been done) nor did she give credit to Republicans for doing this in the first place - that would have been independent.
