Democrat Leader Harry Reid Determined to Continue Regulatory Uncertainty at Any Cost: Willing to Listen on Tax Cuts – But Making Them Permanent “Won’t Happen”

Next to the phrase “tone deaf” in the dictionary is a picture of Harry Reid.
Is it any wonder why this guy has an 11% approval rating (and the unions still re-elected him – speaks volumes).
After a noon conference call with his caucus, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., fresh off his own hard-fought re-election, told reporters, “The one thing that we are focused on like a laser is that we are going to cut taxes for the middle class. Now, I would hope that the Republicans will not block that.”
But Republicans have repeatedly said that is not good enough and have introduced legislation to make all of the tax cuts permanent, saying a recession is no time in which to raise taxes.
It seems everything old is new again. This is the exact same rhetoric and fight we heard before the election.
This is the exact same rhetoric that the Democrats just got shellacked on, even in liberal Washington State. If you don’t know what your taxes will be down the road how does that encourage you to hire again? Politically this is a gift for Republicans and Tea Party activists as they have a poster child to pin this rejected thinking on who has an 11% approval rating AND looks bad on TV..
