Writing intermittently on life, politics, and society

Slow-motion suicide

I shall call this act of political fumduckery the Democratic Party’s use of “second amendment remedies” on their own foot.

I actually think extending the tax cuts, even as a middle class only cut,  is a bad idea. I think the extra money will be saved or used to pay down debt rather than spent, which would be much more stimulative. Instead I think policy should get funds to people who are more likely to spend, i.e. the poor and unemployed.

Speaking politically however, a fight over tax cuts on the highest earners is chock full of opportunities to attack the GOP and show that the Democratic party is trying to stand up for the “middle class”, or actually has principles or something. Of course, that’s too much like right.
