BREAKING NEWS: House unanimously passes Boyda's tax break for military families

From Congresswoman Nancy Boyda's official site:

"'It’s about time,' said Congresswoman Nancy Boyda (Kansas Second District), after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Heroes Earnings Assistance and Relief Tax Act (HEART Act) yesterday on a unanimous, 410-0 vote."
The bill included the language of Boyda's previously introduced Tax Relief for Armed Combat Families Act of 2007.

Today, because of actions taken by Congresswoman Nancy Boyda and the Democratic Congress 150,000 of our service men and women won't see their taxes drastically increase next year.

it's so strange...all these good things she's doing and the Republicans just sit silently...she's actually doing things that even REPUBLICANS think are good!

This is fantastic; we need more initiatives like this. By the way, you might be interested in the Wounded Warriors Project. It's a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness for U.S. troops severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. It really puts a face on the cost of this conflict. Here's a link:

This was legislation that was pushed through several years ago by Republicans .... there would not have been a need to pass it again if Democrats would have voted to make this military tax break permanent, instead they voted against it then.
