Sarah Palin said that the tax compromise was “lousy.” Does this mean that she doesn’t want millionaires to pay less in taxes? Absolutely not. What it means is that she’s upset that working class Americans are getting anything at all out of the deal. If she had her way, the GOP would have waited until their majorities came into Congress and pushed a tax deal that only benefited the top 1% of Americans. Mike Papantonio exposes Palin’s motives on The Ed Show.
