Republicans, In Lockstep, Oppose Largest Tax Cut in History

Yeah, that’s the one: the one Obama just handed them.

The compromise stimulus plan includes $282 billion in tax cuts over two years.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bush’s first two years of tax cuts amounted to $174 billion. A second batch in 2004 and 2005 cost $231. And those were thought to be bigger than the tax cuts offered by Reagan, Kennedy or others.

Sure, go ahead and correct for inflation. But still.
