Who woulda thunk it? Mr. "I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it" John Kerry is back in the news. And what else would he be doing but a total flip-flop on a previously held position?
This time, John can't seem to make up his mind about tax cuts for the wealthy (you know, people like him). It seems though he was accepting of such cuts a few months ago, to even mention it to him now is beyond the pale:
Last week, the member of the Senate Finance Committee told the Boston Globe, "Under no circumstances do I believe we should give a blanket extension to the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans -- it won't fix our economy and it will add billions to the long-term structural deficit."
But in a late July committee meeting, Kerry said he would support a one- to two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts for the rich, if it was part of a bill that also extended middle-class cuts for a longer period, according to person familiar with the situation.
Once again, it boggles the mind that liberals like Kerry think our country can't afford people getting to keep their own hard-earned money, but CAN afford trillion dollar entitlement programs that break the bank. It's all a matter of perspective: conservatives believe the money belongs to you, liberals like Kerry believe it belongs to government.
Well, that's what he believes today. Check back for updates. It's called convictions, John. Get some.
