In a political gambit, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell proposed a freeze on all tax brackets, insisting that cuts for wealthier Americans, as well as for the middle class, must be kept in place. “I’m introducing legislation today that ensures that no one in this country will pay higher income taxes next year than they are right now,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.

Go, Mitch, go. Spending is the problem, not taxes.
