The Democrats never had a chance at overcoming the non- facts repeated over and over by the Republican-Tea Party coalition. Tom the Dancing Bug explains.

I find it interesting that, like the infamous Joe the Plumber, Americans worry about what happens to the rich because they may be rich themselves someday. It is an ingrained part of our national psyche. Perhaps the President compromise on the tax cuts should be raising the middle class cut from $250,000 to $400,000 or thereabouts. And we need to work on the tax code if people are making that much as a business and still filling on their personal tax returns. We probably need some kind of small corporation category for filing added to the tax code.
The discussion in the Lame Duck Congress should be interesting since the Republican Tea Party did run on reducing the deficit and keeping the tax cuts for those making over the $250,000. I want to see their math as it seems keeping the cuts for the very top earners adds to the deficit without helping to pay it down. This will be high on the agenda when Congress returns to session On November 15. It should be fun.
