The agonies of the Democrats over Barack Obama seeking to extend “tax cuts for the wealthy” are fascinating to watch. The president’s team says that we need this deal with the evil Republicans so that we can avoid a “double-dip recession.” If this were so, why didn’t he propose it two years ago? And congressional Democrats are becoming unhinged over the fact that “the rich” are going to avoid an income-tax increase. Apparently they think it is good to keep rates down for the poor and the middle class but not for “the rich.” To the untrained eye, this looks suspiciously like animus toward the wealthy, doesn’t it? Is that what they want voters to come away with?
