    he offered nor is it Simpsons-Bowles.

    If I'm mistaken, dont some of the Bush tax cut expire under the SB plan?

      The <250K portions of the Bush tax cuts do expire under both SB and Bowles.

      That doesn't mean either one is even remotely acceptable, but attaching Bowles' name to this proposal is just nasty.

      •  Agree (0+ / 0-)

        I wasnt endorsing either plan.

        I just said that to note, a lot of conservatives who criticize Obama for not accepting SB seem to forget that the Bush tax cuts for people making over 250k would go up under SB.
