"Rove: ‘No one that I know of is talking about tax cuts only.’"
On Fox News today, former Bush adviser Karl Rove responded to President Obama’s criticism last night of Republicans who offer “more tax cuts as the only answer to every problem we face,” by claiming, “no one that I know of is talking about tax cuts only.” Watch it:
Apparently, Rove doesn’t know any Senate Republicans. Yesterday, 36 out of 41 Senate Republicans voted for an amendment offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) that was an alternative “stimulus” plan consisting of nothing but permanent tax cuts. An analysis by the Center for American Progress Action Fund found that DeMint’s plan would “cost over $3.1 trillion over ten years — more than three times the amount of President Barack Obama’s plan — and be largely ineffective at creating jobs.”
