Battle lines are now being drawn. Joe Biden doing his thing, just like in the VP debate. We won this election and one of the major issues we ran on was allowing the Bush tax cuts at the top to expire.
It's time to draw a line in the sand against the GOP and get this done. It's sound fiscal policy and worked during the Clinton years, so this "malarkey" that we are killing job creators is just that.
By the way, still feeling awesome since Tuesday night. I'm sure you are as well. :-)
Vice President Joe Biden, speaking to reporters the day after the election, said the Obama administration has a mandate on the issue of tax policy heading into the next critical weeks.
"You guys have probably looked at the internals of the vote more than I have so far," Biden said, according to a transcript provided by pool reporters. "But from what it appears is that, on the issue of the tax issue, there was a clear, a clear sort of mandate about people coming much closer to our view about how to deal with tax policy."
Last week, a White House official told The Huffington Post an election victory would provide the administration with a mandate to allow the rates on top earners to rise to Clinton-era levels.
