  •  It's stunning to me (16+ / 0-)

    that you would make accusations like that and not have math to back it up.

    And if you think that people wouldn't look at their paychecks and do the math I just did, you are kidding yourself.

    Only in an alternate universe does this tax deal "create fairness" and isn't a clear cave on a simple campaign promise that everyone understood.

    Fwiw, in many workplaces the $350K earner is the BOSS and the $80K earner is the employee.

      and I thank you for that.

      What you're not doing is making excuses for politicians.

      What the Democrats have forgotten, most of them, is that good policy equals good politics.

      Or maybe they haven't forgotten it.  Maybe they just want to get reelected with money from the DNC, DSCC, and DCCC.  I think that's it.

        will just extort the vote again. The maniac right wing Republican's are so over the top crazy that they just figure what choice do the voters have it's eat your peas and pony up your vote or your going to get the American Taliban, women haters probing your vagina and right to work slave labor laws along with child janitors and no free lunch? Do they even care if they lose majorities in Congress? Why would they the Repugs give them good cover and they can ';move forward with their anti-democratic agenda. Goldman Sach's and the disater capitalist's rule regardless of which party wins. They are too big to fail.

        It's fear mongering but at some point people just have to say the lesser of two evils isn't really working any better. Especially when once elected the Democrat's revert to being stone cold neoliberal ideologues who while not as overtly crazy are just as viscous and anti-democratic. To top it off they are more effective at implementing their global oligarchical  NWO and have managed to strip us all of our basic civil and human rights. By-partisan dirty deals with the rabid GOP kind of takes the fear out of the equation.
