Some progressives are pushing back. In an op-ed this week in the Financial Times, John Podesta of the Center for American Progress and Robert Greenstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, argued that extending the high-income tax breaks even temporarily would send a bad signal to investors worried about rising U.S. debt. And it would leave the task of ending the cuts to the next Congress, which will probably be even more conservative because of anticipated Republican gains in the midterm elections.
wow, podesta and greenstein!
now that's a big SURPRISE!
