  •  "Governor Romney doesn't have a 5 point plan. (6+ / 0-)
    He has a one-point plan. And that plan is to make sure that folks on the top play by a different set of rules. That’s been his philosophy in the private sector, that’s been his philosophy as governor, that’s been his philosophy as a presidential candidate.”
    So said the president in the second debate.

    Part of averting the austerity bomb (aka "fiscal cliff") should be ensuring that the "folks on the top" play by the same set of rules as the rest of us, which means making no distinction in the tax code between investment income and labor income. Income is income. Period.

    The privileged status of investment income must end. That would be a big step away from the yawning chasm between the "folks on the top" and the rest of us and a step towards a more perfect union.

    The GOP can't win on ideas. They can only win by lying, cheating, and stealing. So they do.
