He and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are simultaneously trying to wreck the Republican Party politically by destroying its credibility as an enemy of high taxation. As Americans For Tax Reform President Grover Norquist points out on today’s front page, they’re also trying “get Republican fingerprints on the tax hikes they need to transform America into a European welfare state” that will eventually require a value-added tax or massive energy tax paid for by the middle class.”
The GOP having exhausted all other options may have no choice but do the right thing for the country. May this be the first step for the party finding its voice.
