Jackson Diehl says ...

"None of this will come without cost, nor will it be easy," he said. "But this is America. We don't do what's easy. We do what is necessary to move this country forward."
Minutes later, Obama spelled out what he proposes this to mean for 98 percent of Americans: "You will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime. In fact, the recovery plan provides a tax cut . . . and these checks are on the way."

So much for summoning the country to sacrifice. Obama has been no more willing to ask average Americans to pitch in, even once the recession is over, than Bush.
Yes, lowering the taxes on those already suffering is BAD. How did Jackson Diehl get to be the editorial page editor of the Washington Post? That paper is not what it once was. Perhaps it'll go the way of the Rocky Mountain News.
