Lion's Eat Their Young. Republicans Eat Everybody, Even Their Elder Statesmen

The Club for Growth issued a press release yesterday attacking Republican Lindsey Graham for daring to suggest that a possible fix for Social Security might include an increase in the amount of income subject to the payroll tax. US Newire: "New Ad Campaign to Target TaxHiking Republican..." Of course what they don't mention is that this would be a tax increase only on those individuals who make more than $90,000 a year. That's probably about 160,000 households in the state, or a whopping 10-12% of South Carolina families. This will help Bush's relationship with Lindsey how exactly?
