Great ideas, but we've got Republican leaders like Boehner that fight tooth and nail to preserve tax breaks for the rich while penalizing the rest of us. All this accomplished was to convince millions of voters that the Republican party was the party of rich folks--the opposite of what Cruz is proposing. It would have been easy to take the argument away from Obama and take the initiative, but no, Boehner had to pander to the rich and reinforce the "party of the rich" reputation. Then the GOP reelects Boehner to confirm that reputation.
