Dithering on tax cuts

Posted By on Tue, Nov 9, 2010 at 6:18 AM

Another pickle for Democrats in the lame-duck session is the question of extending Bush tax cuts, particularly those for the wealthy. Pre-election Democratic dithering created this dilemma and many others.

It still looks simple to me. Democrats should propose not to extend the tax cut for the wealthy. Or, alternately, demand that Republicans list specific cuts to pay for the billions those tax cuts will continue to cost. Then call the damn roll.
