President Barack Obama offered, the other day, a “grand bargain” on taxes and spending that only a Progressive could love. Obama offered to lower corporate tax rates (so long as he got to delete enough non-“green energy” subsidies to get a net increase in Federal revenues), if only he could use that increase to spend more (and not pay down our Federal deficit).
“I’m just going to keep on throwing ideas out there,” Obama told a crowd of supporters, challenging Republicans to offer counterproposals.
Never mind that those Evil Republicans in the House already have passed a large number of…counterproposals…over the last couple of years. Those jobs bills, among all the other counterproposals, are languishing in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
