Senate Dems Bring “Focus-Group And Polling Data” Instead Of Economic Data To Yet Another Conference Meeting On Tax Hikes

SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL: “Let’s Get Something Straight. Millions Of Out-Of-Work Americans Don’t Want A Message. They Want A Job. Millions of struggling families trying to make ends meet don’t need the Democrat messaging to improve; they need the economy to improve. Selling bad economic policy to the American people is not an acceptable alternative to creating an environment that will put people back to work and help spur the economy.” (Sen. McConnell, Floor Remarks, 11/30/10)

“Focus-Group And Polling Data” Basis For Dem Tax Hikes

“Schumer Didn’t Grab That Figure Out Of Thin Air. It Had Been The Basis Of Intense Debate Among Democrats For Weeks Before The Election, With Focus-Group And Polling Data Suggesting That It Was The Party’s Best Middle Ground.” (“Man In The Middle,” National Journal, 11/27/10)

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): New Plan Is A “Clearer” Message That “Unites Our Base”

“At $250,000, [Schumer] Said, The Message Is ‘Too Muddled. It’s Much Clearer At $1 Million. It Unites Our Base…’” “Schumer said the higher threshold also would make it far more difficult for Republicans to say no. ‘There’s a strong view in the caucus that if we make the dividing line $1 million, it becomes a very simple argument: We are for giving the middle class a tax break; they’re for tax cuts for millionaires,’ Schumer said Sunday. At $250,000, he said, the message is ‘too muddled. It’s much clearer at $1 million. It unites our base and the independent voters we lost in this election.’” (“Democrats Push Obama On Tax-Cut Compromise,” The Washington Post, 11/29/10)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
