I know that for Obama’s critics the secret is that “he lead” or that he “show leadership” or that he “knock some heads” or whatever, but I think the roll call on the Bernie Sanders amendment should tell you all you need to know about the Democrats’ resolve to hike taxes on rich people. Evan Bayh doesn’t even have to worry about getting reelected and he still sided with the fat cats. Apparently, Democrats from Colorado or south of the Mason-Dixon line are supposed to be for low taxes on the wealthy that are paid for by raiding the Social Security Trust Fund. I’m not saying that the president is beyond criticism on this, but we ought to take a look at our own caucus. Manchin, McCaskill, the Nelsons, Herb Kohl…these people are not on our side. The roll call on the full bill should be posted soon.
