Why would Obama, a champion for health care change, vote against this?

On the Amendment S.Amdt. 4339 to S.Con.Res. 70 (No short title on file)
To provide for a deficit-neutral reserve fund for providing an above the line Federal income tax deduction for individuals purchasing health insurance outside the workplace.

We know where he stands on this so no big surprise. But for those who farm, have a small business and want to see it passed to our kids...this man wants your kids inheratence:

On the Amendment S.Amdt. 4372 to S.Con.Res. 70 (No short title on file)
To protect small businesses, family ranches and farms from the Death Tax by providing a $5 million exemption, a low rate for smaller estates and a maximum rate no higher than 35%.

Love this...he voted against:
On the Amendment S.Amdt. 4232 to S.Con.Res. 70 (No short title on file)
To pay down the Federal debt and eliminate government waste by reducing spending 5 percent on programs rated (as mandated under the Government Performance and Results Act (Public Law 103-62)) ineffective by the Office of Management and Budget Program Assessment Rating Tool.

The Obama masses are so upset over the preacher flap, they fail to see that the record will be the issue...
