  •  People fixate on what they understand. (6+ / 0-)

    A crotchety old conservative ranted to me that 'libruls want to tell you where you can eat' because he only understands 'libruls making rules on how you can spend your money' and 'he spends his money on food'.

    People fixate on the $250k/$500k debate because they have paychecks.  People ignore dividends/capital gains/estate taxes because they don't have them.

    So, yeah, smart move would have been to play the sucker and give up on the $250k/$500k debate but double the CED rates.

    To any wingnut: If you pay my taxes I'll give you a job.
