It's an Idea

Booman wants the Dems to tack left on the Bush tax cuts, and revise them to lower taxes on the bottom 98% and raise them on the top 2%, to either be revenue-neutral or (preferably) to increase revenue in order to start hacking away at the deficit.

This would, of course, immediately set off a new round of "Marxist wealth redistribution!" from the right. At which point the Dems should just run ads featuring the chart that's been making the rounds recently:

and say, "You're damn right it's wealth redistribution! Wealth has been massively redistributed upwards for over a decade now. The free ride ends today, bitches!"

But for that to happen Dave Chappelle would have had to have been elected president, and not Barack Obama.
