Nice opinion piece from David Brooks...
Obama Rejects Obamaism
Obama just can't win with some people. If he aims for the center, people say he's negotiating with himself and giving up more to the right than is necessary. If he aims to the left, people say he is needlessly antagonizing the right. Conservatives (such as Brooks) may not be happy until he is actively aiming for the right.
Brooks never really says why the proposed changes would be bad, he just says they are divisive, poorly premised, and won't be passed. He does however find space to note that some of the people Obama wants to tax already make charitable contributions.
Brooks also doesn't seem to realize that high-end tax hikes are actually popular with the public now.
Something a good amount of wingnuts on here don't wish to acknowledge, either.
Not really the same thing. We're talking rates, NOT total accumulated taxes.
Actually it is the same thing.
He talked about both.
