It's beginning to appear certain that Democrats will roll over on taxes — no vote before the election on extending the Bush tax cuts except those for the wealthy. Afterward, with the expected Republican tsunami, Republicans will settle for nothing less than extension of Bush tax cuts for all, including, particularly, billionaires. Can the Democrats then play the Party of No as Republicans have so successfully? Of course not, even if they could muster such discipline for once. That position will mean tax increases for the middle class. They must move now, while in the majority, or never.
Nice work, Dems. Defeat again snatched from the jaws of victory.
