Joe Biden thought he had Paul Ryan when he pointed out that Ryan helped two constituents apply for stimulus funding. Ryan, of course, opposed the stimulus. Purple Wisconsin blogger, Jim Rowen, takes up the cudgel on this, adding that Ryan opposed the stimulus on "ideological grounds" which, actually, is just another way of saying that he thought it was a very bad idea - as, indeed, it proved to be.
But here's my question for Joe Biden.
Vice President, you opposed the across the board reduction in income
tax rates proposed by President George W. Bush and enacted in 2001 and
2003. Those reductions passed over over your objection, as the
stimulus package passed over those of Congressman Ryan.
paid taxes at the lower rates that you opposed? Have you refused to
take advantage of those lower rates by calculating your taxes using the
higher rates that you preferred to remain in place?
