  •  The "problem" with taxes for the Dems (1+ / 0-)

    Since walter Mondale (D) 1984 said he was going to raise taxes and lost 49 states, no one word has scared dems more ever since. This has been an albatros on their necks as they have come to be perceived as the party of taxes...desptie the fact that Reagan and Bush Sr raised taxes.
    -Usually the GOP wins on this issue no matter the logic. Heck! who wants to pay higher taxes? No one.
    -But then what about the deficit that this same GOP vows is the most urgent issue?
    -Now they don't care that extending the Bush cuts would explode the deficit.
    You see Republicans are bunch of reactionary opportunists. And I would tell you categorically that Repugs have no principles. Don't be fooled. They grap onto what is they see as the "hot" issue of the day and make that their campaign issue.
    -Aren't these same people who orchestrated the largest bailouts in sept 2008, the same ones now wipping up sentiments about bailouts? And unfortunately I don't see anyone reminding people out there that Bush had more bailouts than Obama.
