Robert Kuttner on the GOP's spin point about double-taxation:
But why special treatment for dividends? Workers pay income tax on wages and salaries, and then they pay sales tax at the store and property taxes on their homes and excise taxes on tickets - all on spending from earnings that have already been taxed once.
The sense of entitlement is never so clear in the Republicans than when they think that their special interests are the only ones who suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous tax fortune.
