Ann Coulter Says GOP Should Give In To Obama On Taxes: 'We Lost The Election'

No, I'm not kidding.

Ann Coulter shocked Sean Hannity on Wednesday when she conceded that she thinks Republicans should let tax rates for the rich go up.

"OK fine, let's do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it," she said. "It doesn't mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans."

"So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?" Hannity asked.

"Not exactly, I--" Coulter said, before stopping herself and saying, "Well, yeah, I guess I am."

"You're saying capitulate to Obama?" Hannity stammered. "We don't have a revenue problem, Ann."

"We lost the election, Sean!" Coulter replied.


Wow, I never thought Ann Couler would be reasonable. This makes me really suspicious...

2. It's all in the plan to take the oval office back for republicans

 

The economy will still be stagnate in 2015
It might be unpopular to say that here but it is what it is.

The affordable care act will be in full swing with many down sides of it exposed.
Health care costs will still be on the rise, premiums will go up.

Some large companies will take the two thousand dollar fine an tell employees to go to the insurance
the ACA will have in every state.

The only chance the republicans have is a slow economy and to be able to say "We did what Obama asked and it's still not working.

The President doesn't have enough time to turn this thing around.

It took years to get in this and right now 4 years is not enough time.
Will the public take the bait from the republicans?

who knows....

4. I think the economy will be better in 4 years

That's one of the reasons I felt so strongly about this election. I knew that if Romney won he would get credit for the tough decisions Obama made to get the economy going again and the economy would improve enough that he would be able to claim whatever he did worked.

The economy is starting to recover, which is why I, unlike some DUers, don't think it is a good idea to just let sequester and the tax hikes happen, because that will send the economy backwards.

6. Do you mean the tax hikes on people earning $250,000 or more?

 

Or every tax hike that will be pushed on both sides.
While taking deductions away is not technically a tax hike it will be perceived as one by the middle class.

I don't see the employee payroll tax cut staying in place by the administration.
I can also see possible mortgage deductions being cut some way.
Everyone is going to be hit some way before this is over.

7. What does it say about the Republicans...

That Ann Coulter is closer to reality (on this issue at least) than most of these clowns?
