Why won’t Republicans raise taxes?

Filed under: In The News,Politics,Taxation — Ken @ 8:00 pm

An excellent point from one of my favorite Journalists, Major Garrett on Chris Matthew’s Hard Ball:

“…look at the political realities. You didn’t raise taxes in the lame-duck session when you had 59 Democrats in the Senate and almost 260 in the House. Don’t expect Republicans to raise taxes when we own the House of Representatives and have six more Senate seats. Operationally, as a matter of politics that doesn’t work.”
