Meanwhile, I’m sure we’ll be hearing the GOP, the Teatards and the likes of Glenn Beck and the Quitter complain that these tax cuts amount to “Generational Theft” — right?

The size of the compromise package, roughly half of which came from extending all the Bush tax rates for two years, roughly paralleled Mr. Obama’s initial $800 billion package of stimulus spending and tax cuts in early 2009 — only this time with Republicans’ tentative agreement.

I guess it’s “immoral” to make our grandchildren pay for infrastructure and teacher’s salaries — but not tax cuts for rich people.
