Limp Frist on Tax Cuts

Senate “Majority”, um, “Republican”, um, “Leader”, um, oh heck Bill Frist is talking about tax cuts today. His Washington Times editorial says he is for tax cuts. He even explains some of the benefits of lower taxes. I don’t doubt Frist’s conservative credentials, but I do question his ability to move meaningful reforms through the Senate. Remember, Trent Lott was majority leader when the bulk of the “Bush tax cut” passed in the Senate.

That said, our problem in the Senate is probably not Frist. I know his leadership ability isn’t what it probably should be but we must also remember the so-called Republicans who think tax cuts and fighting a war to win are losing positions. We can’t really blame Frist for Chafee.

But we can get rid of Chafee.
