You'd think that the political party that brought you the "Clear Skies Initiative", "Compassionate Conservatism", and "Corporate Citizenship" could easily avoid their share of the blame for #Boehnerquester: Pass the Paul Ryan - Marco Rubio 2013 Budget Plan.
The solution should be obvious: The plan should call for cutting the top marginal tax rate from 39.6% to 50%. (After all, that's what Ronald Reagan did!) The number of income tax brackets can be cut from 7 to, say, 10 or even 15. The portion of capital gains subject to income taxes can be cut from 50% to 100%. The carried interest loophole can be increased to 0%.
Just pass it under the names of the party's current heroes, get Fox "News" on the bandwagon, and all our troubles will be over!
