Republicans to the Rescue!
What will be the first thing they do to tackle our severe economic problems? Why, fully extending the Bush Tax Cut. Here's House GOP Conference Chairman Mike Pence:Well, we're going to stay focused on Election Day. But I think before that, we're going to continue to demand that this administration and this Congress make it clear that no American will see a tax increase in January of next year, no matter how wealthy.Ok, I added those last 4 words. Obama keeps getting criticized for always "blaming Bush," but, really - Obama hasn't given any indication that he understands the fundamental problem we are facing (grotesque levels of debt of which only a fraction can ever be paid off) - but obviously the razor-sharp analytical minds in the Republican leadership haven't managed to catch site of the forest, either.
