For the two years, Democrats have been pushing a range of middle class policies — health care reform, unemployment insurance funding, jobs legislation and even 9/11 first responder health money. Did Republicans support those policies ? Nooooooooooooo.
Tax cuts — even though most Americans want taxes to expire. If tax cuts were so great, why did Bush’s plan not prevent the recession? And…how can decent people oppose funding for those who do not have jobs but support tax cuts for those who OBVIOUSLY are making money (over $250K, as a matter of fact)? That’s just heartless.
