Obama lowered quite a few taxes, including the very effective payroll tax holiday, which pulled us out of recession. Now he needs to raise some, because America has a serious revenue problem and needs to stimulate the economy since the private sector won’t do it in a recession. We need roads, railroads, and bridges, we need science and education, and we’re falling behind the rest of the world due to backwards, European style austerity policies pushed by the center right. The Republicans cannot perform simple governing tasks, and somehow the Democrats have the tax problem?
