Language Matters

I have to agree with Kos on this one. One of Obama's latest proposal is a modification of tax policy to raise the income tax rates on the highest bracket from 35% to 39.6%, which is back to where they were during the horrible, horrible 90's when we all suffered under Clinton's onerous eight years of peace and prosperity (and, somehow against all odds, the stock market went *up* dramatically). Meanwhile, for the other 95% of us, we will get a tax *cut*.

So it will be interesting to watch coverage of this proposal in the traditional media. Will they portray it as a tax cut or a huge, massive, record-breaking, economy-killing tax hike? Just remember as you watch the coverage just how super-duper-ultra-liberal the media is.
