"Fiscal responsibility" I can get behind
Most of the savings will be realized from winding down the war in Iraq [with some portion taken out for winding up the war in Afghanistan] as well as increased revenue from Americans making more than $250,000 a year, said the official. The Times said Obama will propose letting President George W. Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy lapse in 2010.
It's a start, though after the fiasco on executive compensation, we'll need to see detail.
Now, how about not just getting out of Iraq and into the graveyard of empires in Afghanistan, but getting rid of the empire entirely? It's wrong, and we can't afford it anyhow.
And when we're done undoing the damage Bush did to the tax code, how about rolling things back to, say, before Reagan? You know, when we actually had a middle class?
