Political Logic Bending: How a tax increase is not really a tax increase


In the linked interview, The Speaker of The House attempts to explain that letting tax cuts expire is not a tax increase, but "eliminating a tax decrease"! Very entertaining television. Now, some of you liberal friends may think that the Bush tax cuts unfairly benefited the wealthy, but why not just say - 'OK, it is a tax increase, but a fair one.' and move on. I understand admitting a tax increase would be used in many campaigns, but so will this video clip because it is such a ridiculous stretch of logic.
