The Wall Street Journal is wrong, and John Boehner right. on the matter of how to do this payroll-tax holiday. I explain why, here. One key passage from a longer post:
“The reality is that the Republican position of a year-long tax cut should be a political winner over the Dems’ two-month cut. There are ways to turn around the politics. They are ways that must be attempted, because the two-month cut is flat-out irresponsible.”
I repeat another point I made in that post: What in the (Bleep) were McConnell and the other Republican Senators thinking, to put Boehner and company in this position?
