It has been said (often by yours truly) that the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. It can be applied to many types of situations, but it hits home when it comes to certain policies.
One would think if you’d just come off a monumental loss in the past 2014 midterm elections, you might want to try something different. In the case of the far left progressive socialists of the Democrat Party the answer is — nah.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, “With less than a month before the White House sends its budget proposal to Congress, a senior House Democrat on Monday introduced an “action plan” foreshadowing the upcoming battle over the tax code and whom it benefits.”
“The proposal from Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, is aimed at encouraging companies to boost salaries at a time of stagnant wage growth and enabling workers to keep a bigger chunk of their paycheck. The centerpiece of Mr. Van Hollen’s proposal is a new $1,000 tax break for workers earning under $100,000 per year, or $2,000 for working couples making up to $200,000, with an additional bonus for those who direct part of those extra funds toward their savings.”
