I recently did a post explaining five policy reasons and five political reasons why Republicans should maintain a firm no-tax-hike position.
Realizing I left out a powerful argument, I then added another political argument in this post.
But the GOP isn’t taking my advice. But why?
Is it because they’re well-meaning doofuses, as suggested by this Chuck Asay cartoon?
Or are they co-conspirators, as suggested by this Michael Ramirez cartoon?
Since I’ve already explained that politicians are a combination of good and evil, I actually think both cartoons are accurate.
All I know is that I would like to force these clowns to spend a couple of minutes watching this video from Mattie Duppler of Americans for Tax Reform. They would then realize there is no legitimate argument for Obama’s class-warfare policy.
