  •  Senator Murray didn't succumb to their framing (6+ / 0-)

    She appropriated it.

    So, the Republicans are screeching, "Debt! Bad! Austerity! Spending cuts!"

    Murray swoops in and says, "Debt! Bad!  Raise taxes on the rich!"

    She's the perfect person to do this.  She has just presided over a HUGE victory and the chances of her being dislodged from her Senate seat are just about non-existent.

    So, now, when a Republican starts screeching about debt reduction, the topic of raising taxes on the rich will come up - and there's no way the Democrats will let it go.

    I think this is just political strategy here.  Not much else.
