Can the GOP really be this stupid? It appears many in the GOP Congress are suddenly willing to raise taxes. What utter fools. As Forest Gump's mother (played by Sally Field) said, "Stupid is, as stupid does." And this is world-class stupid. If GOP politicians can't figure out any good arguments to oppose tax increases, I’ll give them a few.
Much was made over the weekend about cracks in Grover Norquist's "No Tax Pledge" dam by Rep. Peter King and Senators Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). Before we go on, we all know there IS such a thing as the "No Tax Pledge," but until last night as I was writing this, I had never actually read it.
I’ll huff and I’ll puff till I blow your house in! Like the big bad wolf in the fairy tale The Three Little Pigs, Vice President Joe Biden thought he’d huff all over Representative Paul Ryan in the only vice-presidential debate. But between Biden’s snickers, interruptions, and finger pointing at Ryan, Biden demonstrated why President Obama’s agenda is “not working.”
"We fact-checked that, that five trillion in tax cuts, and we've come and said that's not true."
