Economist Robert Reich warns GOP against ‘refusing a tax cut’ for the 98 percent

The Left made quite a fuss over Mitt Romney’s suggestion that President Obama won votes by promising “gifts,” such as college loan forgiveness and free contraceptives, to different constituencies. That’s not stopping the administration and its supporters, though, from encouraging taxpayers to imagine all the goodies they could buy with the $2,000 Obama wants to send them in the form of tax cuts and share those wish lists with hashtags like #My2K and #2200Dollars.

We haven’t taken any of Robert Reich’s courses at Berkeley, so in our ignorance we’re still wondering how an extension of current tax rates counts as a cut. These people are scratching their heads too.

Graduates of the Reich school of thought are glad to know, on behalf of the starving, that the anti-American GOP is on its way out.

That’s right, vote Democrat — where if you’re lucky enough, you get to enter the middle class and stay in the middle class.
