Allen West says it best:
Well when you sit back and you look at where we are with our economy, the amount of debt that we have incurred, the fact that we have had four straight years of trillion dollar plus deficits… When the president sits down and says he wants to raise taxes on those at $250k or above, that’s only going to generate about $850 billion over the next 10 years. We have had 1.42, 1.29, 1.3, 1.2 and now we’re on the way to another trillion dollar deficit just for these years.
So what the president is proposing is not pragmatic whatsoever, and it really is a reflection of him, I suppose, living in some type of fantasy world.
He also blasts Chuck Schumer’s comment that Republicans should just let Obama have his tax increase because he ran on tax increases and won the election, saying he’s not an idiotic person who’s going to follow someone off into the abyss.
