Krugman Stabs Troops In The Back

The answer is, eliminate the capital gains tax. Now, what was the question?

John Boehner:
“If we’re really serious about creating jobs, what we ought to do is, we ought to eliminate the capital gains tax for the next two years on any equities that are purchased,” he said. He argued that cutting the corporate income tax would help boost employment.
This brings back a memory: on Sept. 13, 2001, I got frantic calls from staffers on Capitol Hill. They informed me that Republican leaders in the House were trying to use the terrorist attack to ram through, you guessed it, a cut in the capital gains tax.

HOW SHOCKING!!!!

Clearly while our valiant Holy Crusaders are ever gloriously victorious in the Holy War Against the Evils of Liberal Wall Street, the Most Important thing in Preventing Gay HomoZeXual Marriages, IS a Capital Gains Tax Cut!!!

Anything less and the Terrorists WIN!!!!
