  • I may be way off but I swear I saw a few days ago polling suggested that people were in favor of raising taxes for the Infrastructure Bill...cant find it yet but there was lots of articles about it last year as well.

    They Do Support Infrastructure

    I think if the Dems couch it in "JOBS!!!!!" the raise taxes meme will be offset with the non-derpers.

      The problem is the human instinct for loss aversion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loss_aversion). It takes a lot of possible future jobs for that carrot to offset the fear that the taxman is going to come take what they’ve already got.
      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        Not if you are the one getting the job. This might not get the average office worker to love it but Blue Collar Workers will make out like bandits and that is who Biden appeals to beyond just the Dem base.

                  Is that the "The Other Party are F'in Nazis and Refuse to Govern" clause?

                    Interesting. I wonder if this is why yesterday the idea of the Infrastructure Bill being 2 different proposals was making the rounds. Either that or maybe $15?
