So Blatant Even AP Couldn’t Ignore It

From the AP via The Hare-Dispatch on President Obama’s announcement that he will be holding discussions with congressional leaders tomorrow in an attempt to resolve the debt ceiling stalemate:

“The president called on lawmakers to ‘leave their ultimatums at the door,’ but he stuck to his—that any deal must include new tax revenue. ‘We need to take on spending in the tax code, spending on certain tax breaks and deductions for the wealthiest of Americans’…The White House is proposing about $400 billion in increased tax revenues.”

Hilariously, Obama and the Democrats never thought to tackle this during the two years they had absolute control of the federal government and went on a spending binge that would embarrass a drunken sailor. Equally hilarious is the fact that last December, when Democrats still had large majorities in congress, they passed—and Obama signed—an extension of the Bush tax cuts—even “for the wealthiest of Americans.”
