I am not willing to be bamboozled by GOP stumping for tax cuts. A) Thirty years feeding the rich has broken us. B) America needs a period of structured renewal, not more free market brigands and chaos. That’s critical now.
In reply to stalling and foolishness, Obama said,
“In recent days, there have been misguided criticisms of this plan that echo the failed theories that helped lead us into this crisis, the notion that tax cuts alone will solve all our problems; that we can meet our enormous tests with half-steps and piecemeal measures; that we can ignore fundamental challenges such as energy independence and the high cost of health care and still expect our economy and our country to thrive.
“I reject these theories, and so did the American people when they went to the polls in November and voted resoundingly for change.” White House blog
