    Rand Paul: We Should Let Dems Raise Taxes And Then Let Them Own It​



    December 6, 2012



    SEN. RAND PAUL: I have yet another thought on how we can fix this. Why don't we let the Democrats pass whatever they want? If they are the party of higher taxes, all the Republicans vote present and let the Democrats raise taxes as high as they want to raise them, let Democrats in the Senate raise taxes, let the president sign it and then make them own the tax increase. And when the economy stalls, when the economy sputters, when people lose their jobs, they know which party to blame, the party of high taxes. Let's don't be the party of just almost as high taxes.

    LARRY KUDLOW, CNBC: Some people have called that the doomsday scenario. Others have said, 'Look, it's a strategic retreat on the Republicans' behalf.' WWould you vote present for that in the Senate if that came up?

    RAND PAUL: Yes, I don't think we have to in the Senate. In the House, they have to because the Democrats don't have the majority. In the Senate, I'm happy not to filibuster it, and I will announce tonight on your show that I will work with Harry Reid to let him pass his big old tax hike with a simple majority.......

    Yes you should, you really should. Amazing how many people are suggesting utter capitulation after fighting like rabid pit bulls for 4 years. I guess it really is all or nothing with you people.

    A lunatic tells us what we should do and Republicans say, "Yea, sounds good". What a surprise.

    Ayn Rand Paul thinks he's a player. He's just a dumbass teabagger. Nuts don't fall far from the tree.

    But they won't earn it...
    If you give the Democrats what they want and when it fails they will blame it on the Republicans.

    If raising taxes is good and fair, and the Bush "tax cuts" (which Obama extended) are so bad, why not raise taxes on everyone?
