Robert Reich warns GOP against ‘refusing a tax cut’ for the 98 percent


The Left made quite a fuss over Mitt Romney’s suggestion that President Obama won votes by promising “gifts,” such as college loan forgiveness and free contraceptives, to different constituencies. That’s not stopping the administration and its supporters, though, from encouraging taxpayers to imagine all the goodies they could buy with the $2,000 Obama wants to send them in the form of tax cuts and share those wish lists with hashtags like #My2K and #2200Dollars.

We haven’t taken any of Robert Reich’s courses at Berkeley, so in our ignorance we’re still wondering how an extension of current tax rates counts as a cut. These people are scratching their heads too.

@rbreich hey, twit…nobody is getting a tax cut. Tax rates will remain the same as they have for 10+ yrs or go up as the Democrats want.

@rbreich Allegiance to America now means strangling its economy with high taxes.

Graduates of the Reich school of thought are glad to know, on behalf of the starving, that the anti-American GOP is on its way out.

@rbreich Cannot understand how the Republicans can behave as if there was no election, which they lost. Baffliing!

@rbreich You know it. I know it. Explain it to the same GOP-pers who think God and the U.S. Constitution is for them andonly them.

@rbreich I wish GOP voters were only 2%. I can’t understand how they keep getting the “poor white trash” to vote for them.

That’s right, vote Democrat — where if you’re lucky enough, you get to enter the middle class and stay in the middle class.
