You know, I think this may be the best deal we will ever get out of our current government. I sympathize with the concern expressed by some that extending unemployment benefits will only add to our over-spending woes, but we may not get a preservation of the Bush tax rates any other way.
In the end, I think our best bet is to accept our unfortunate political reality. Let’s leave it to Obama to play the spoiled, foot-stomping child.
ETA: I’ve changed the title of this post because, of course, what we’re talking about here is an extension of current tax rates, not an actual cut. And by the way, lying liberals, we conservatives want low taxes for everybody, not just the “rich”.
