Coulter: Republicans Should Cave on Tax Hikes Because "We Lost the Election"

Ann's right to a degree. We need to take the fire out of Obama's rhetoric. He wants to raise top end taxes to 39%, and that he wants to raise the inheritance tax. Give it to him! A single bill from the house that raises taxes on anyone making over $250K to 40%, but excludes any income on a Schedule K in which the taxpayer is an officer of the company (i.e. excludes profits from small businesses). Raise the inheritance tax but exclude the value of land, buildings, and equipment used in farming or small businesses. Eliminate the deductions for state and local income taxes. Lower the tax rate by 1% on everyone else. Pass that bill, send it to the Senate and adjourn until the next Congress.

Sounds like a pretty good plan/

Obama will CHOKE because to accept it more than takes his argument away and hits the Dems in high-tax NY, NJ, MA, and CA the hardest, and to refuse it means that he is openly attacking small business and farm families and raising taxes on working families.

Hannity to Coulter: "You sound like Obama." Fightin' words:
 


 

SH: So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?
AC: Not exactly, I--Well, yeah, I guess I am. 
SH: You're saying capitulate to Obama? We don't have a revenue problem, Ann.
AC: We lost the election, Sean.  


Hannity seems genuinely flummoxed by Coulter's capitulatory attitude, but does she have a point?  Recent polling has been gruesome...
