First the Democrats win big on Security with Bin Laden, Gaddafi and Libya – now it seems they are gaining ground on the tax issue too, just carving out the 1% who are paying the lowest rates in 60 yrs.
From the House:
House Republican leaders warned their caucus the GOP risks losing its image as the party opposed to tax hikes if it allows the one-year payroll tax break to expire at the end of the year.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told his rank and file in a closed-door meeting Wednesday that “taxes are a Republican issue and you aren’t a Republican if you want to raise taxes on struggling families to fund bigger government,” according to a source in the room.
They never cared about the struggling families for the last 30 yrs, other than a segment to plunder and suppress, but times are changing. The pendulum has stopped, and will strike back.
