The Deal In Graph Form – The Cup Is More Than Half Full!

From Steve Benen, THE MAN, in my opinion.

And here is Steve’s explanation of the chart.

I thought I’d go ahead and create a visual for this. The left column shows the cost of the Republicans’ high-end tax cuts in the deal; the middle column shows the cost of President Obama’s progressive priorities like an extension of unemployment benefits; and the right column shows the cost of the tax cuts for those making under $250,000, which both parties generally supported. (The y axis is in billions of dollars.)

And this sentence was also in the post, gotta love real progressives.

Tim Fernholz asked rhetorically, “Was anyone else expecting a $450 billion stimulus this year? Me neither.”

  1. Gosh, extreme, i think I like Steve’s chart better than TWR’s. Very graphic.

    I hope the firebaggers decide to grow up and stop trying to take the rest of us down with them. ugh. so sick of them.
