President Obama, urging Democrats to get in line to vote for his tax and spending compromise, warned that failure to pass the bill would hit low and middle income Americans with "massive tax increases."
True enough, but that means President Bush's "tax cuts for the rich" were also "massive" tax cuts for low and middle income Americans. Moreover, Obama knew it all along. No surprise there, but the fact that Obama is willing to say it aloud demonstrates the contempt in which he holds the intelligence of the American People. He assumes we are too dim witted to notice.
