Not a bad idea. What would he use to bash Republicans in his campaign?
He'd just propose even higher taxes and continue with the same tax the rich, class warfare campaign. Should we then pass his next set of loony ideas to?
Hussein is not putting forth real plans. He knows they will not pass. He now recognizes the economy is going to be terrible right up till election day 2012 and has decided to effectively act as if none of his agenda to create jobs has ever passed. He's pivoted from "things are getting better" to "things can only get better if you pass my tax hikes and stimulus plans" We are back to early 2009 when he proposed Porkulus in the first place.
I'd say the Republicans in the House should give him the payroll tax cuts and a few of the small business tax breaks. None will help the economy much, but at least it helps starve the beast and gives the appearance that the GOP is reasonable and wants to "work with the President".
He wouldn't have to do anything. They would be voted out for betraying their constituents.
