(10:18 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Political SpeculationAre the Democrats going to roll over on making Bush's tax cuts permanent?
How could they not? The Republicans might want to let it through so that they can accuse Democrats of the biggest tax increase since the Hamurabi administration or something, but is Bush going to back down on his signature policy? And can we honestly say that fair, progressive taxation is something where the Democrats have been making a principled stand?
(Hopefully the election is still far enough away that I can criticize the Democrats without overly influencing that crucial swing voter in Ohio.)
