Bill Kristol: “The Republicans are in real risk now of looking like they’re defending keeping the current tax rates for the wealthy, the Bush tax rates for the wealthy, and right now the official Republican position is let the payroll tax rate go back up by 2 points.

At the end of the day, President Obama is selling a very simple message, ‘I want to keep taxes low for middle-class Americans,’ and Republicans look like, I’m worried are in the position of looking as if they don’t care about the middle class and just want to keep tax rates low for wealthy Americans.”
