  •  Not a clear line, nor firm (0+ / 0-)

    It appears to be an article of faith among the vast majority of Democrats that the Bush tax cuts should NOT expire for most people. The question is where is the line drawn.

    •  No question (0+ / 0-)

      at all about where the line should be drawn. Mind you, there is no question at all that climate change is a real issue but that doesn't stop your campaign to run interference on that subject.

      I am sure there is a nice third way blog out there somewhere that would resonate with you.

      •  No idea what you're talking about (0+ / 0-)

        My preference is that the tax cuts expire for everyone (i.e., return to the Clinton-era tax tables), but that is not where the majority of the Democratic Party is right now, it seems.

        And "running interference on climate change"--say what?

    •  Right, but, once they expire, (0+ / 0-)

      the Republicans will be in the position of having increased taxes for the Middle Class by not agreeing to avoid that up front.

      Purging predominantly minority voters and requiring them to present IDs to vote in the face of VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT VOTER FRAUD is RACISM! I hereby declare all consenting Republicans RACISTS until they stand up and object to these practices!
