This is the truth, and everybody knows it. This puts the lie to the political appelation "tax cuts for the rich" that has existed since 2001, repeated by so-called unbiased "journalists" like Katie Couric. Understand this! If the "Bush tax cuts" are repealed EVERYONE'S taxes go up.
Republicans will have to stand up to media and celebrity scorn, anyway. They WILL be blamed for "obstructing" the deal. But I believe that House members have no choice but to hold their ground on this and force Obama to blink.
