Ah, wonderful. The President seems to be framing this election as a choice between whether you want to raise taxes or not. Vote for him, and you don’t want to raise taxes. Vote for Kerry, and you do. All Kerry has to do is explain that he only favors rolling back the tax cuts for people making $200,000 or more, and if the American public isn’t completely, utterly, totally moronic, they’ll say, “yeah, that sounds like a good idea.”
Do I trust the American public? Of course not. But this should be such a trivial argument to dismiss, I’m curious to see whether Kerry will be able to handle it effectively or not.
