I think Nancy Pelosi
sums up your ideas nicely. That's why we love her so much.
I made 2 points. One said that republicans complained about taxing very rich people to offset a payroll tax cut for very not rich people. That is the a fact I don't see how it was misrepresentative ( if that is a word ).
As to the supply-side argument you can say that it is a talking point but I do not see much in the way of argumentation or policy, from republicans, that isn't supply-side in nature or certainly not demand-side. I don't see the falsehood in pointing out the republicans have no point to make about the lack of demand. The only points they are making are spending is too high and taxes are too high on the rich. They don't seem to have much of a problem complaining that the lucky duckies that don't make enough to pay taxes are somehow parasites or whatever the non-%53 percenters are called in the hallowed halls of the GOP.
