Senate GOP Leader McConnell Offers Obama Temp Bush Tax Cut Deal

Tidbits 2

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) is doubling down on failed trickle-down economic theory. He wants to keep the Bush tax cuts in place, but more importantly the tax cuts for who he and fellow Republicans call “job creators.” Or who I and fellow liberals like to call “rich people.” Funny, I thought middle-class consumers were the job creators because they buy the products and services that fuel job growth. Silly me.

    McConnell insists that he wants to compromise on tax cuts.

    Unfortunately, the Republican concept of compromise — a key component of any meaningful negotiation — is for the opposition to discard their own beliefs and completely embrace the conservative point of view.

    In short, their notion of negotiation involves capitulation by the opposition­.

    Suggestions that tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy will stimulate job growth is simply their cover, their disingenuous talking point designed to try to sell their Reaganomic bill of goods to the public. Ultra-wealthy Americans made a major investment in the Republican Party during the 2010 mid-term elections. The GOP is simply carrying out the job for which they have been duly paid.
