I think this would be a great idea, but the media is going to blame everything on the Republicans. When the economy tanks, people will have less money, and the media will blame the Republicans because they didn’t vote to just raise the taxes on the rich.
If only we had even a semi-educated public that would not believe the lies of the MSM, I’d have no problem with this. No matter what happens to the economy, it will NEVER be the Messiah’s fault. NEVER.
I think this would be a great idea, but the media is going to blame everything on the Republicans....They are/will anyway.
No, because by obstaining, the democrats will vote to raise taxes on the rich only. When the economy tanks, Republicans can say—WE DIDN’T VOTE FOR THAT!
Agreed, I feel the same way. The single argument that the Dems ultimately make is that “the Bush tax cuts created the deficit” (especially for the rich). Obama is posturing for keeping them in place except for the top 2%, that somehow that will take care of things. For the sake of destroying this myth, I say fine, let the top 2% rate go up - but let them OWN it.
As for the top 2%, sorry guys, but it’s the only way to kill this whole class warfare bs. The people voted, maybe they should see what they asked for (unfortunately). I just fear that in 4 more years, along with Obamacare being fully implemented, our country will be in shambles. I suppose I just ask myself this, is that what it’ll take for people to wake up? It’ll be quite difficult to blame Republicans.
