More Democrats Defect on Taxes


Greg Sargent notes, with some perplexity, that four Democratic Senate candidates are saying that the Bush tax cuts should be extended — even those on the rich. (His perplexity arises because a poll suggests that most people think that that portion of the tax cuts should be allowed to expire; I suspects the results would be different if the poll tested the specific argument those Democrats are making: that we should extend all the tax cuts for now and reconsider the issue when the economy is stronger.) If it’s any consolation to Sargent, I doubt any of those four Democrats will be in the Senate next year.
