Tax cuts for toasters!
We know that McCain has made serious inroads to working women the past two weeks — every poll bears that out. And we know that Team Obama wants to win them back.
Their solution: Tax cuts for toasters!
Broadway Joe Biden made that very pitch to Meredith Viera of the Today Show this morning. The money quote (from politico.com): Our tax plan would take that tax cut [and give to] the very people who desperately need it to stay in their homes, to buy food, to take care of the gas, to fill up their tank, to be able to go out and buy a toaster, to employ people.”
I know my mom will be happy. She’s been eyeing a new toaster for quite some time. To the more serious issue of raising taxes (again from Politico), Biden revealed that he does, in fact, live in a parallel universe:
VIEIRA: â€œSenator, you and Senator Obama are calling for tax increases on the wealthy. And there are many economists who say that that would hurt the economy even more.â€
BIDEN: â€œI don’t know any economists who are saying that.â€
Really Diamond Joe? You don’t know any who are saying that? What do you read when you’re Amtraking it back to Delaware?
