Miller says GOP won't back bank tax
U.S. Rep. Brad Miller sticks it to the Republicans in a new post on Huffington Post, predicting the GOP wont like President Barack Obamas too-big-to-fail tax on banks.

Republicans hate taxes, so they'll probably be against this one, Miller writes.

But, he says, the GOP had the exact same idea a few years ago, reports Barb Barrett.

Obama this week proposed the fee on big banks in order to recover about $120 billion that the federal government expects to lose through TARP, the Toxic Asset Recovery Program bank bailout, Miller writes.

1. It's going to be fun to watch the teabaggers spin this one....
.... after spending a year championing "the little man" who "just wants his money back" they'll be forced by the GOP establishment to start defending the poor, defenseless bankers. :eyes:
