Charles Krauthammer weighed in on the ongoing fiscal talks in Washington DC on Special Report:
“Obama’s proposal to raise rates on the rich is a triviality…It would reduce the deficit from $1.1 trillion to $1.02 trillion. Eight cents on the dollar. It’s nothing. It’s lunch money. It’s a rounding error. And yet it’s all that we’re hearing. He’s not trying to fix our fiscal problems, he’s trying to destroy Republicans.”
And Republicans are helping him.
