Indiana House GOP Members Not Happy With Tax Vote

Two of the candidates come to the race with previous legislative experience in Washington.

In the wake of the Payroll Tax Cut Vote, the Republican House Delegation from Indiana is unhappy with the Senate. Representative Dan Burton says it could have been filibustered.

“It could have been blocked,” he says. “We would have had to stay there and pass a one-year extension. Which is what we should have done.”

Congressional negotiators instead agreed to pass the two-month extension proposed by Democrats, buying time for further negotiation. The House Republicans say that only creates needless uncertainty.
