House Dems and Tax Cuts


House Democrats won't be forcing a vote on extending the Bush tax cuts for middle class taxpayers,
a senior House leadership aide tells TPM.

As we've been writing about today, Democrats are gleeful over a window of opportunity they see
just in time for the midterm elections over John Boehner's positions on whether to make Bush's tax cuts
permanent for everyone but the wealthy.

That's what Obama is pushing, and Boehner suggested Sunday he would support such a vote if
that were his only option. He walked it back, but it begged the question about whether the Democrats
would present such an option with a House floor vote. Will the Democrats force Boehner's hand?

A senior House leadership aide says no.

"We shouldn't force his hand, we should let the Republicans dangle out there with their divisions exposed
and keep hammering them on holding middle class tax cuts hostage for $700 billion in debt-financed tax cuts
for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans," the aide said.

Let me ask a question - and I'm serious:
Am I the ONLY person in the Democratic party who knows how to argue a point?

The Democrats ALWAYS miss the super-obvious, in this case it's this:

Who wanted the tax cuts to expire in 9 years?

George W Bush!

It was Bush's idea to let the tax cuts expire after nine years,
so why is Obama a Kenyan Socialist if he agrees with Bush?

Bush is the Socialist here - it was his idea for a "temporary" tax cut
and that makes Bush anti-American and anti-business.

I can't stand being the smartest Democrat in America.

That's why we're in so much trouble  - because the IQ-of-64 Okie
is the only guy on our entire team with half a brain!

If there was any other place to go I would've gone there years ago.
