Tim Pawlenty's tax cut proposal

Do you think the Bush tax cuts came near to bankrupting America? Just look at Tim Pawlenty's tax cut proposal. As TPM notes, it's Bush's plan on steroids!
An independent analysis found that it would cost the Treasury over $11 trillion over the course of a decade -- nearly three times the cost of the Bush tax cuts -- most of which would benefit the wealthiest Americans.

Crazy, isn't it? How can the Republicans still be pushing this kind of thing, given how disastrously the Bush tax cuts have already exploded our budget deficit?

And how can Republicans continue to push such giveaways to the wealthiest of the wealthy, without paying a penalty at the ballot box from the other 99% of us? It's just incredible, don't you think?
