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”

Posted by iusbvision on November 5, 2010

Next to the phrase “tone deaf” in the dictionary is a picture of Harry Reid.

Harry Reid

Is it any wonder why this guy has an 11% approval rating (and the unions still re-elected him – speaks volumes).

Fox News:

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..

    I say, “Yes, Senator Reid! Let’s have that same old fight. Again and again! Stick to your guns, Senator. Demand more spending. Continue to define “rich” down and “poverty” up.

    I’ve got no problem with returning in two more years to shellack your party once again.
