- Republican leaders' disrespect for President Obama, shown by their transparent snub of his recent proposed tax cut meeting at the White House. I also want to get this maddening Republican stance off my chest:
- Republican presumptuousness, when it comes to declarations about "what Americans want," posits that we want tax cuts for the wealthy extended despite polls that show they oppose such an extension. Even some millionaires oppose an extension for the wealthy. Predictably, Representative Eric Cantor has announced that Republicans will oppose any upcoming Democratic attempts to get an up-or-down vote on extending tax cuts for the middle class.
- Democratic accommodation,"caving in" could be the only way middle class taxpayers will lose out in this debate. If that happens we will be justified in really "letting the Dems have it."
So I got this issue off my chest today, but there is something just as corrosive about the latest airport security moves by the TSA. I am glad I am not flying these days because I feel sure I would be tempted to let someone have it by speaking out in line as I try to get on my plane. And I would never be allowed to board. But this discusstio will have to wait for another blog post. Fair warning.— post date: 11/20/10 by Carol Gee Author of:
