Dear Republican Congress, Give Obama and His Boys Everything They Want - Doug Giles - [page]
I really think that Giles is on to something here. We have had enough divided government to soften the level of disaster since the Democrat congress takeover in '07, but it has allowed muddled thinking.
The Democrats want to tax the rich. The removal of the W tax cuts is $80B added revenue a year assuming the "rich" don't change their behavior to get less income. The government spends $10B a day. We are arguing over 8 days of spending!
What if Republicans went on TV and said "Here is what we believe will happen, but people want compromise, so here it is. Please learn from it.".
It would at least be a different approach!
