The young Mr. Wellstone is absolutely correct! Cutting SS benefits and slashing programs for the least fortunate in order to keep taxes artificially low for the wealthiest is WILDLY INCONSISTENT with both Minnesota AND American values.
I maintain that ALL the Bush Lite tax cuts should expire. Since receiving them made little difference for 98% of taxpayers -- losing them will make an equally small difference. Anyone who is serious about working toward a balanced budget should cheer the additional revenue.
