He is rightly pointing out that the plan the Republicans want implemented is basically a mirror image of Bush tax cut policy to the rich, which somehow people seem to have forgotten didn't work!! Obama's plan it a combination of spending AND targeted tax cuts. Bush kept those tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans during his entire 8 years in office and did the economy improve? No. Did the unemployment numbers keep increasing? Yes. So It's about time that Obama is reminding the GOP of that inconvenient truth. As well as reminding them that America spoke loud and clear voting for him and that means no more Bush era economic policies. As it is the Republicans are acting like they won the election!!!
If the Republicans are going to eschew bipartisanship as they did right off the bat in saying they'd vote against the bill before even meeting with the president then I say bulldoze over the top of them, pick off a few moderate Republicans and pass the damn thing already.
Oh yeah and Sarah Palin is annoyed by bloggers--good, that means we're doing our job. Keep it up!!
