  •  House GOP Not Returning To DC? In My Book That's (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    not a bad thing - let them stay away and the tax rates on all their 1% contributors go up to Clinton era levels automatically on Dec. 31. In addition, their MIC defense contractor buddies get screwed with automatic big time defense cuts. What's not to like about that? I know, Medicare cuts also kick in, and the middle class tax rates go up, but the Dems can deal with those issues retroactively in January after the new Congress is sworn in, without the Rethugs using the tax rates for the wealthy as hostage taking bargaining chips. In fact, if the Democrats play their hand strategically, they can use the lower tax rates on the wealthy the GOP wants so badly, to extract some big concessions from the Rethugs on things we want in the next Congress.
