NANCY PELOSI: No Fiscal Cliff Deal Without Tax Hikes On The Wealthy.
It occurs to me that whatever bill goes to the Senate, Boehner should make sure it includes a restoration of the motion-picture excise tax and my 50% surtax on “excess” earnings by former government officials. Let the Senate Dems either swallow those, or remove them and take the political heat.
UPDATE: Reader Greg Lesko writes: “If I were Boehner, I would add to the motion picture excise tax, language recognizing that the highest earners already pay more than their fair share and this tax hike proves they are willing to be even more generous than they have already been. Time to end the class war.” Yes. Praise their generosity!
