In a few hours the House will vote on the GOP’s Plan B, which would raise taxes only on those making more than $1 million a year. Because, you know, those struggling folks making 7 or 8 or 9 hundred thousand dollars can’t possibly afford a penny more.
The GOP’s bill will also restore the cuts to defense spending that are part of the sequestration scheduled for January 1.
Now, you may be thinking, if they raise revenue by such a tiny amount and restore the defense spending, where are the deficit cuts the GOP is always promising?
Don’t worry, the GOP plan also cuts food stamps and Medicaid.
Nothing quite says “Happy Birthday, Jesus!” like snatching bread and medicine from the mouths of the poor.
