Daily Awesome: The premier self-appointed authority on liberalism, freethought, and awesomeness.
The idea that we should even consider cutting taxes on the richest 1% is absurd. In a saner world, we would be discussing how much to raise taxes on them.
Unfortunately we live in crazy town where we borrow money from China to spend on tax cuts for the super rich while we destroy Social Security to reduce borrowing and spending.
Apparently, the GOP is planning on spending around five-hundred million dollars (that's $500,000,000.00) on attack ads to counter Obama's reelection run for 2012.
And the Dems are prepared to set up outside groups to counter that by spending more money.
So the only obvious answer is that we're no longer having an economic meltdown, right? I mean, to spend that kind of money, we have to be out of the hole!
