PROGRESS: Carville: Yeah, we’re obviously going to see entitlement cuts in this deal. Cut deep.
And I’ve got some tax-increase ideas, too, involving repealing the Hollywood Tax Cuts, and my 50% surtax on “excess” post-government earnings by federal officials.
Remember when Mitt Romney was pushing for Medicare and Medicaid reform and calling for an across-the-board, 20 percent tax cut?
Back then, Obama portrayed it as a sneaky trick to prop up Romney’s country-club buddies at the expense of the middle and lower classes. Less than a month later, it’s a feat of bipartisanship.
Well, he won.
