    Well everyone knows Schultz is a moron (or should know this). But "read my lips": it's not as if the GOP has never read any taxes.

    The only thing I can think he's referring to is Paul Ryan's plan that Eric Cantor endorsed on To Meet the Press yesterday.

    Citizens for Tax Justice ran the numbers for his plan awhile back.

    Your first mistake is listening to Ed Shultz.

    As pointed out, it's Paul Ryan's roadmap. Apparently it fulfills the wishes of all those conservatives who think the rich are overtaxed and the un-rich are undertaxed.

    To give you an idea of how his own network feels about Schultzie boy....They gave his time slot to a nobody who would fill in for Ed from time to time and moved Ed to 10 PM....What a loser.

    Why would anyone believe Republicans give a fig about the middle class? Of course they want to shift the burden to those from 20 to 200K OR LESS. No one here can possibly believe otherwise.

    I believe he means they want to 'flatten' the tax base.
