December 17, 2012

Obama has heard every argument from the GOP, the gaggle of conservative economists, and financial analysts on why it’s foolhardy to press for a tax hike on the wealthy. The hike won’t come close to raising the revenue needed to avert the fiscal cliff. It will stunt business growth and…
