  •  I agree it needs to be framed as a cut (5+ / 0-)

    on incomes up to $250k instead of a cut for families making up to $250k.  The latter implies that, if you make more than $250, you don't get the cut.  I think talking about incomes instead of people is a pretty simple way to characterize it and something everyone would understand.  The problem is now it's probably to late to change the perception.  Another messaging failure.

    •  Bush Billionaire Bonus has a nicer ring (2+ / 0-)

      to it than tax cut.  

      As in -- We cannot afford another round of Bush Billionaire Bonuses.

      Or --- The Bush Billionaire Bonus borrowing decade dug this hole.  It did not "create jobs". The theory was proved wrong. Instead, it gave us an avalanche of job shedding.

      And --- WE have created more PRIVATE SECTOR jobs since I took office than Bush created in his 8 years.  Results matter more than failed theories.  

      The fact I bolded should be repeated by every Dem in every discussion about anything until it wipes out the proven wrong trickle down lie.
