Taking Taxes Out Of The Equation
John Boehner repeated the ubiquitous GOP meme decoupling the deficit from taxes in tonight's 60 Minutes sob fest:
"Washington does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem."
I'm guessing that this is going to be successful unless the Democrats get very smart very quickly. This is the kind of phrase that just "sounds right" and if they can get this fully absorbed into the political conversation, it's going to be very hard to battle back. Assuming anyone has any intention of doing that, of course.
