The cartoon, "Mitch McConnell calls for extending tax cuts for top 2 percent," does not run. It has been several days and it still has never run. Apparently, no one at The Post ever checks this site.

Whether the GOP's arguments are right or wrong, I'm amazed that they would attempt to make it. Who do they think is going to rally behind the "Tax Cuts for Millionaires" banner in this economy?

I guess it's hard to draw funny cartoons when you have a permanent mean-faced smirk on your face all the time.

Liberals are always mad and it shows. They grow up that way and just get used to it.

“I guess it's hard to draw funny cartoons when you have a permanent mean-faced smirk on your face all the time.”

======================================

SATIRE is often best expressed as ridicule. Satire is hardly ever funny to the people who are ridiculed.
Telnaes’ Icon’s mischievous “smirk” is quite appropriate to such a MASTER of satire!

And, if any group deserves ridicule (and worse) it is filthy rich scumbags – whether Republican or Democrat.

Also, thinker??16 - - - use of “ permanent” and “all the time” in the same sentence is redundant - - - like saying “100% Perfect”.

yes raise taxes in a depression -- smart-- sunday he said would vote for keeping part of tax cuts if that what was offered ---- the tax increases are less to do about rev as to punish success-- if you are an important demo you do not pay them anyway [ ie daschle, rangel, timmy g, sebelius, etc]

It is no longer a secret that the Republicans support the rich and powerful and the Democrats support the middle class and no one supports the unemployed.

The only way we will survive our present economic calamity is to increase "Available Funds" and get people back to work earning enough money to support the supply side of economics and everything else. Economics is simply having enough "Sea Shells" to support a quality nation.

Yes, we can count on the GOP and Teapotties to go all out for "wealthfare", even though many deluded Teapotties don't earn even $50,000 a year.

It is remarkable to what extent the GOP will go to protect the wealthy, large businesses and special interest in this country. They would would rather raise the taxes on everyone so their wealthy supporters could save a few bucks. They claim that the wealthy would use this tax break to hire additional workers but most studies have shown that this is not true. Trickle down economics does not work it never has and never will!

AT, I am at a loss why you did not have the gentlemen from Kentucky and Connecticut at the ready with toilet paper to wipe the arse as well.

48% of citizens want the Bush tax cuts extended for all Americans. 40% want a continuation of Bush tax cuts for all except the top producers who pay nearly 40% of all taxes to the government. 12% either don't care or are socialists, or cheat on their taxes or work for the Washington Post.
