Mike Pence takes issue with Tim Geithner saying over the weekend that the country can withstand allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. However, he seems to mischaracterize it a little, suggesting that Geithner said that for the whole of the Bush tax cuts to expire. According the the clip I heard, Geithner was referring to the top 2-3% of highest earners in the country. Be that as it may, Pence is otherwise correct that the country can’t withstand these tax increases along with the totality of spending, borrowing, and bailouts. At some point we are going to be as poor as Obama and the Left want us to be because we won’t be able to stand with so much debt on our shoulders.
