Republican Candidates take the no new taxes pledge

Taking the pledge - no new taxes
At the first Republican Presidential debate FoxNews tried to prove it is a legitimate news organization, not just a right wing agit-prop operation. So they asked some interesting questions. The best was would you support a deficit reduction deal in which cuts exceed taxes by 10 -1. The bloody fools all raised their hands to just say No to increased revenues. I suppose the eventual nominee will walk this back, but all but Perry will have to deal with the picture of the raised arm affirming "no new taxes". Not a popular position - no new taxes even for the rich. But it is not the unpopularity that is important - it is the irresponsibility. - GWC
