We will allow the top-level Bush tax cuts to expire rather than drastically increasing them to meet the three decades of unmet needs your financiers have been leveraging to explode their private wealth while the nation has fallen behind. Your debts are colossal and growing, but we are willing to forego them for the moment.
We will cut some non-essential spending to give you some cover with your people rather than doubling, tripling, or quadrupling budgets via revenue from massive top-level tax increases, all of which would be enormously popular and economically explosive, because we don't want to rock the boat too radically.
And you will reluctantly swallow it and sell whatever points you can to your constituents because your Party is about a dozen years past its welcome in America. Now thank us for this opportunity we are giving you to remain slightly relevant, slightly longer, and then retire gracefully back into obscurity.
