Response to RepublicansRZombies (Reply #14)

17. I don't disagree with your assessment of the terrible behavior of the Republicans. However,

I think that we could reach the good goal of fair tax rates quicker, with less rancor, by
moving toward it slower. In reality, it's going to be a major feat to raise the taxes on the rich even a little. So, our discussion is probably just academic.

We obviously can allow the so-call Bush tax cuts to expire and we can propose a new bill that would put the middle income earners back to the rates of the Bush plan. The Republicans, if they are dumb and crazy enough, just might do anything, including leaving the higher tax rates on the middle class while framing it as our fault.

It's going to be a rocky road. We have some leverage. Let's hope its enough to force the Pubs into some cooperation.
