Obama’s reply to the Republicans on closing income tax “loopholes”

Just a quick post today because I’m at a conference. I thought this post on Start Making Sense was interesting. Dan suggests that the political debate in the US on the Bush tax cuts has adopted the language of ‘expenditure’ to refer to this proposed tax cut. It’s an interesting example of how the language used to frame the debate is important, and it suggests that those opposing the cut have the upper hand.
