I'm not a fan of trickle down economics. And I agree, I hate that tax cuts and refusal to tax the upper class are off the table. I think those are stupid party policies. But I think those are much bigger issues than inability to address massively escalating entitlement costs. After all... Lower taxes is a simple fix. In the future, raise taxes. Entitlements on the other hand... Those won't be reformed unless somebody takes a bold step.
I disagree. If the reports are true, the "grand bargain" between Bohner and Obama, Obama put entitlemnet cuts on the table in exchange for taxing the rich.

Dems arnt blind. Entitlments have to be reformed and curtailed but no ****ing way will I ever be in favor of that without the rich going back to the tax rate under Clinton. Thats not too much of a burden to bear.
