Ross Douthat writes:
Maybe it isn't a conscious strategy for the Democrats, but it makes a certain sense: Take from the super-rich, who aren't tax-sensitive, and the pretty-damn-rich, who will probably vote for the GOP no matter what, and give to upper-middle class professionals, a constituency where the Dems have been making inroads for a while now.
Sorry, Ross, but it's evident that the "inroads" are more like "surrender." Higher taxes on the super-rich and pretty-damn-rich will affect constituencies that have pretty much gone over to the dark side (the Democrat Party, that is).
