How desperate are Democrats? They're now claiming a sudden 180-degree decision to not raise a specific tax on the middle class is the "Obama tax cut for the middle class."
Except no one is getting a tax cut. It's just that a select group of people won't be hit with a specific tax hike.
Follow that? Democrats announced a plan to raise taxes across the board. Americans revolted. Democrats backed off and decided to raise taxes only for some people, which a majority of Americans still oppose. With their poll numbers plunging, they're now claiming their decision to only raise some taxes is a tax "cut."
The kind that leaves some people with higher taxes, others with the same taxes and no one with lower taxes.
That's like starting to steal $10 from the Salvation Army kettle, getting caught and then claiming that putting it back counts as a $10 contribution to the Salvation Army.
