By failing to address the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, the Democratic Party is all but ensuring the extension of tax cuts to the wealthiest 2% of the nation, and at least an additional 3.7 trillion dollars of budget shortfall for the foreseeable future.
If this is true – and it appears to be – then this will go down as one of the stupidest moves by the spineless weasels on the Hill – and that’s saying a lot for this crop of morons. This was a win-win for the party – offer a needed tax break to 98% of the population, and force the Republicans to defend giving a break to the most privileged class in the nation.
Synchronicity and I were talking in Chat the other night about John Boehner and ways that we could help prevent him from taking the House. We suddenly came up with the brilliant idea to create a Facebook page. So, without further ado, may I introduce you to it:
Yesterday we started with about 4 fans. Today we have over a hundred. Won’t you please visit the page if you haven’t done so already, and if you are a Facebook user please share it with your friends. If you don’t use Facebook, please copy the link anyway and feel free to email it or to post it in comments around the web. Synchronicity has been advertising it in comments at HuffPo and has gotten some great feedback. We’d appreciate it if you’d help us in our efforts to get this link out. Thanks so much.
