Flawed progressive logic

Today we’ll take a break from the gmo/science obsession and turn to the arena of actual politics.  A friend posted this photo on Facebook:

Here’s what I think is a flaw in progressive logic.

Where do your priorities lie? Which is stronger, your hatred of the rich or your desire to put one million people back to work? If the Democrats passed this bill, even with that odious rider, one million people get jobs tomorrow.

If you pass the law with the rider intact, you can always go back and revisit the tax cut issue and vote it down at a later date. If you don’t pass it, how does that help the one million unemployed people? They remain out of work and those rich people stay rich, even without the tax cut extension.

So, if you stand on principle and your sense of fairness and refuse to allow a vote on the bill, who really wins?
