  •  Yeah, I heard from Grover... (1+ / 0-)

    He was all over CNN, telling Wolf Blitzer and his vast audience that this was a winner, that what we didn't get in this deal, we can get in the showdown over the Debt ceiling.

    Wolf tried to make the point that these republicans will be breaking their no tax pledge, and Grover said, "Hey, this was going to end in a day if this isn't passed, and we made it permanent for 90%,  So, Yeah I would vote for it and so should the Republicans."

    The interview is probably on CNN's web site now.

      Thanks for alerting me to this.  What a damn hypocrite!

      He actually said that voting for this package is not tax increase!  (Hello?  What do you call $600B in higher taxes from yesterday?)

      See Grover Norquist supports Senate cliff plan

      While WaPo says: "The broad increase in taxes ... is highly unusual by historical standards."

      Which one do you believe? ;-)

      •  Those taxes have expired as of the new year. (0+ / 0-)

        Obama has lowered taxes for people making up to 400K but this is permanent, no expiration like Bush.  This cuts off a large source of revenue.

        Yes, it is an increase for a small number of people, to be lessened by the battle on the larger tax code to come.

        Not a happy camper this morning.
