    but Obama is not arguing for a reversal of Bush policies.  Quite the contrary, he is going to end up accomplishing what Bush couldn't with SS, has already extended the Bush tax cuts, has done nothing about Part D, and last I checked we're in about 6 foreign wars.  There are the big ticket items under Bush.

    Who here is arguing for any of that crap?

    •  of course that's what he is arguing (5+ / 0-)

      "I'm willing to cut defense spending by hundreds of billions of dollars"

      But we should also ask the wealthiest individuals and biggest corporations to pay their fair share through fundamental tax reform. Before we stop funding clean energy research, we should ask oil companies and corporate jet owners to give up the tax breaks that other companies don't get. Before we ask college students to pay more, we should ask hedge fund managers to stop paying taxes at a lower rate than their secretaries. Before we ask seniors to pay more for Medicare, we should ask people like me to give up tax breaks they don't need and never asked for.
