Are Congressional Democrats Turning Into the New Republicans? - Page 3
Well, gee whiz. I never would’ve guessed that. Holy crap...your letter just cleared all of that up for us. I mean, it’s not like Walsh also reported that many congressional Republicans have been “making similar arguments, pushing for a two year freeze on all current tax rates.”
Oh, but it gets better, campers.
Those that signed on to the letter declared that “in times of economic recovery it makes good sense to maintain things as they are in the short term, to provide families and businesses the certainty required to plan and make sound budget decisions.” I’d call that pure poetry if not for the fact that the American taxpayers, you know, the people for whom these bike seat sniffers work, have been saying the same damn thing throughout this entire debate. But I digress.
Obviously, my headline question was a rhetorical one. I’ve said before that the GOP is likely to regain a fair number of seats in both houses of Congress, but it isn’t a sure thing. Many incumbent Democrats are in big time trouble, and they’re going to have to do anything and everything to retain their majority. If I was that insecure about losing the kind of power and influence that comes with being a member of Congress, I suppose I’d be lying through my teeth if I said that I wouldn’t do something similar.
The good thing for me is I don’t have that kind of power, which leaves me lots of time to be worried about far more important things...like trying not to fart in a crowded elevator.
