  •  well, this is the issue, isn't it?.. (0+ / 0-)

    But is this thing really a stimulus?  If so, they better just do a temporary extension of them all.

    The larger problem seems to be that we have a president who is reluctant to take his case for higher taxes for the wealthy (or for anyone for that matter) to the people- and now he has put it off so long, that there isn't enough time to do it now.

    Tax policy never was their thing- and so it seems we are stuck with the bush tax code at least for the next 4 years.

    This tax thing really is very related to the problem that Obama has in not actively promoting the positive role that government has in our lives- and how we all have a stake in funding it.  He is afraid to make that case to the american public- and until he does- or someone does- effectively, we are stuck with conservative governance and policies no matter which party is in control.
