Time for a new frame on Bush tax cuts

For those of you that remember talks about the estate tax, which is called death tax by Republicans (their frame which is very effective), there was an attempt by liberals/progressives to call it the Paris Hilton tax cut.  Sadly that never really took off.

So when we talk about letting the Bush tax cuts expire on income that is higher than $250,000 (those wealthy folks still get the same tax cut as everyone else on the income below $250,000), we need a new frame.  I suggest we go with the Fox News/Republican/Tea Party bogey name to get us there, it is time to call it the George Soros tax cut.  I want to hear John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, not to mention Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Sarah Palin to defend the George Soros tax cut.

    George doesn’t need a tax cut. He doesn’t pay any taxes with the current tax codes. The ultra rich aren’t being taxed.
