How can you tell when he's lying? His mouth is moving:
Burr: We'll Talk Taxes If Democrats Ease Entitlement Stance
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) told WFMY News 2 he'd be willing to discuss tax increases for the wealthiest Americans if Democrats are willing to make cuts to "entitlement" programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
This non-offer offer is probably in response to some negative exposure he's going to get today:
The WNC Central Labor Council/AFL-CIO, along with Asheville-area MoveOn members, will gather this afternoon outside Sen. Richard Burr's local office for a candlelight vigil.
The vigil, at 4:30 p.m. at 151 Patton Ave., Asheville, will argue the position that middle-class taxes must stay low and there must be no further extension of the Bush tax cuts for the top 2 percent of taxpayers.
All that said, I don't think Burr is even one of the players in this (thank God). The U.S. Senate is in Dem hands, so it's up to House Republicans to compromise with the President.
