I’m a bit puzzled. Grover Norquist doesn’t think it’s that awful. http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/Norquist-Biden-McConnell-support/2012/12/31/id/469608?s=al&promo_code=11596-1
Since we already went over the cliff it is, technically, a tax cut.
He says we've won part of the battle; now it's time to fight the rest of the way.
I agree with the article and think our hand has been strengthened in the long run in getting these cuts permanent for a large part of the voting public and not subject to expiring at the stroke of midnight on a certain day....that fight is over. The debt ceiling is where we have the leverage if we show a backbone.
LOL, thanks for the :) on this sad night.
Grover is more of a realist than he is made out to be, and that I thought 6 weeks ago.
When he admitted that plan B was NOT raising taxes he was admitting that taxes were going up automatically Jan 1 if nothing is signed into law.
Even Grover didnt want to raise taxes out of spite just because Rs could NOT stop some taxes from going up. He is against raising taxes.
On Jan 1 Obama’s $250K demand was a tax cut, DUHHHH!
House Rs should have extended some of them many weeks ago and moved on to the next fight.
The Norquist’s of the world are creatures of the beltway who depend on big money support from interests that want the illusion of prosperity to go on.
This is a band aid that allows the unsustainable system of big government and rising debt to go on.
But when our national debt hits a certain level in the future, the bubble will burst. Greece will come to us.
