Democrats are understandably -- and largely justified in being -- frustrated that they lost an election based on Republicans defending tax cuts for the wealthy that are only expiring because of a budget gimmick championed by George Bush . . .
That "gimmick" limited the tax cuts to ten years in order to avoid a Senate filibuster. Why, in fact that's the same "gimmick" Obama, Pelosi and Reid "championed" to ram through their massive health insurance bill.
And so it goes.
