Politico Arena: Are women in politics still routinely demeaned in the news media, or is it all about Sarah Palin (see this in Vanity Fair and this about who said it.)?
Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform:
“Sara Palin is not being attacked by the establishment media because she is a woman. She is getting the same treatment Goldwater, Reagan and Gingrich got when the establishment press saw them as threats to the Left.”
President Obama cannot shake the unwanted attention over potential taxation of health benefits. The President has put himself in a situation where the only way to pay for his health care plan is to tax employee health benefits; a proposal which would break his promise to not raise taxes on people making under $250,000 a year.
