Quote of the Day

“Let’s make it clear, the president got his tax hike on January 1st.  The discussion about revenue, in my view, is over. It’s about taking on the spending problem here in Washington.”

John Boehner after meeting with Obama this morning about the sequester.

The Bush tax cuts expired on January 1st.  The president didn’t “get” a tax hike on anybody, income tax rates went up automatically.  What the country — and the GOP — got was a tax cut on everyone making less than $400,000 for individuals/$450,000 for couples.
