Make the Democrats Own the Obama Economy

I don't get why there is so much drama over this issue. What the Republicans need to do is state clearly for the record that they are opposed to raising taxes during a bad economy, but the result of political gridlock would result in the same tax increases plus increases on the other tax brackets. In exchange for working along they should be able to demand some real spending cuts, or if the Democrats refuse then hang that on them. We all know that raising the taxes is symbolic and won't close the budget gap, but by giving Obama what he wants then he and his party will have to explain why his "soak the rich" campaign rhetoric didn't pay off.

Here is the problem: until ALL of the wealth is confiscated from the rich, the Dems will ALWAYS be able to say that the rich aren't paying their fair share. That argument will never go away. If Obama gets his way now and the economy tanks anyway, he'll just say they didn't tax enough. Class warfare is always on the table for statists.

After they confiscate all of the wealth of the rich and discover that it doesn't even come close to paying for their unicorn fantasies, they will simply redefine the word "rich" lower and lower until they get enough. Unfortunately, to them the word "enough" is meaningless.

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
