Good Morning – Not such a great morning for Vice President Biden and the Buffett Tax. As he heads into NH today to campaign on the Buffett Tax, there are a few things greeting him: a new web video from the RNC, New Hampshire’s paper’s blasting the Buffett Tax calling it a “total sham” and a “total hoax,” and gas prices are 21.7 cents higher than they were just 1 year ago…
Welcome to NH Mr. Vice President, I’d be frustrated too.
The Buffett Rule is not about math or fairness or shared sacrifice. It is simply a cynical ploy to buy the votes of the ignorant and gullible.
Buffett, schmuffett, President Obama's Buffett Rule has nothing to do with fairness, despite what Vice President Joe Biden might say today when he visits Exeter.
The Buffett Rule is about class warfare as is much of the president's re-election bid to date (i.e. the alleged war on women). It is also about distracting voters from the Obama administration's mishandling of the economy.
As Vice President Biden speaks today, he will do so against the backdrop of a stock market on a roller-coaster ride.
By, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
