“President Obama and the Democratic majorities in Congress can no longer afford to let comity defeat common sense,” wrote Eugene Robinson in the Washington Post under the headline “Roll Over the Republicans.”
His article seems to say to me:
–bipartisanship is dead.
–any stimulus is a good stimulus.
–we own the store so now we can loot it.
Recall Barack Obama’s “redistribution of wealth” remark and then retraction/explanation?
To “Joe the Plumber:”
“It’s not that I want to punish your success,” Obama explained. “I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too. My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
Then there was a slip of the tongue last Thursday at the spa about “ramming the stimulus down their throats.”
The Dow and opinion polls reflect what is really here: class warfare. The rich are now too rich and they looted us all. Death to the rich.
Why don’t we just prosecute the bad guys?
Republicans are in the way: as Eugene Robinson’s essay says.
Majority rules and “we won.”
Pork in the stimulus? Senator Schumer says “Americans don’t care.”
Schumer Says Americans Don’t Care About Pork Spending
So guys like Schumer wrote an irresponsible stimulus. They don’t care about the debt either.
There’s a new law in town.
Hope this works.
While Democrats have resected proposals from Republicans on tax breaks, the Dems are preparing to raise taxes:
A group of Senate Democrats plans to introduce a bill on Tuesday that would impose an income tax of 10.3 percent on the highest-earning New Yorkers, a rise of 3.45 percentage points, and increase taxes on all households that earn more than $250,000 a year.
