Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew had a thought.
I don’t think that there’s any advantage in pretending that there aren’t big disagreements on the individual tax side. We had a national debate just two years ago about the top rate. We’re not looking at the kind of negotiation to go back to lower the top rate.
Never mind that after that debate and just a few months ago, Americans voted overwhelmingly to reject President Barack Obama’s tax policy—which he’d placed on the ballot along with every single one of his other policies (every single one of which were similarly rejected in that same election).
This Progressive, along with Obama, Knows Better and recognizes no obligation to listen to his employers.
It’s going to be a long two years with President No and his Party of Naysayers still in the way of economic reform and long term economic recovery and prosperity.
