Zombie Lie With An Expiration Date?

March 6th, 2009at 10:29pm Posted by Eli

As Media Matters points out, Republicans and the media have been insisting that Obama is about to Raise Our Taxes OMG, despite the fact that for 98% of Americans, taxes will decrease or hold steady.  This is all very well and good as fearmongering, and it fits with the conservative stereotype of Democrats as serial tax-raisers, but…

At some point, won’t the people in that 98% realize that their taxes haven’t gone up?  And won’t that point be sometime before the 2010 midterm elections?  Obama and the Democrats can just tell voters that they should vote Republican if their taxes went up, and Democrat if their taxes went down or stayed the same.  I think that seems fair.
