Credit this bit of genius to Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley (R) as posted on FoxNews.com:
On Saturday, Grassley criticized Obama’s proposals for tax increases as failing “to connect all the dots.” The senator said the major tax increases will only force people to drop out of the work force, reducing tax revenue to pay down the deficit.
“There’s evidence that the president and his people understand this, even if their budget doesn’t show it,” Grassley said. “They say they don’t want to raise taxes until 2011 because the economy is too weak. … Well, if the president admits that tax increases hurt the economy, that will be true in two years as it is true today.”
