What Rhymes with Pie?

Republicans recoil in horror at the mere mention of raising taxes, any taxes ever. They all give the same tired reason, “We can’t raise taxes on the job creators.” Recently they have adjusted that soundbite to, “We can’t raise taxes on small business.” I guess they figured “job creators” was just a bit too abstract. But “small business” is right up there with mom and apple pie. As it turns out however whether you referred to job creators or invoke the all American small business, the whole thing is probably a hallucination from the fertile mind of Frank Luntz (see my post of December 2 ). You could say that bit of spin is right up there with mom, apple pie and big lie.
