Fat Chance

Now here's a novel idea:

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said Wednesday he will ask Americans earning more than $200,000 a year to pay the taxes they paid under President Clinton and pledged to retain the Bush tax cuts for the middle class and even add to them.

Of course it's empty posturing and shouldn't be taken seriously, but it does raise an interesing question. I've met plenty of people who opposed the Bush tax cuts, but I have yet to meet one who's turned them down. Why?
