New name I came up with for the Ryan plan, that infuriates the Teabaggers.
And they hate it most because they can't refute it.

"George Soros tax cut."

1. You know, I'm not sure I understand this.
How would Ryan's plan be connected to George Soros? Can you explain?

Are you sure you don't mean Karl Rove?

6. Soros opposes those tax cuts.
I'm still confused here. If a slogan makes no sense, is it a good slogan?

9. Yes.

The weathiest, that is.

And considering that Soros is Public Enemy #1 according to the Beckerheads, Teabaggers and Dittoheads, it hurts all the more.

Soros himself opposes such tax cuts, he knows he has oodles of money, and doesn't have the naked greed some of his contemporaries have.
But the fact is, Ryan's plan would give Soros bigger tax cuts.

3. Mr. Soros, Sir, Would Benefit Considerably From Ryan's 'Tea-Bagger' Tax Scheme....
Thus, the plan makes a present of money to someone they see as being damned near to the Anti-Christ.

20. Most of the teabaggers are too stupid to understand it.
Slogans aimed at them must be simple.

4. No. The Ryan Plan is meant to cut taxes for the wealthiest
to 25%. It's outrageous, but the seniors and the poor apparently are not as important as moving whatever wealth there is to the top one percent. That includes Soros, and he's a fine example.

Giving Soros a big pile of cash is a bad thing to a Glen Beck viewer.

5. I Don't Know How Appropos This is:
"Soros said he expects the global economic slowdown to continue into 2011 and we need more fiscal stimulus to avoid a second recession. He also thinks extending the Bush tax cuts to the wealthy is a mistake."

But using George Soros as an example of a recipient just infuriates them more.
