The Center for American Progress is about to release a report advocating a new political tack for Democrats. They're going to tie the GOP alternative proposals to -- yes -- President Bush's now-unpopular agenda.
CAP calls it the "Bush-Boehner-Cantor" Economic Agenda.
It's the first real pushback by Democrats to the substantive pushback by House Republicans. Lots of pushing back. Based on this theme, a coalition of labor, liberal and progressive groups will unveil some television advertisements designed to pressure frosh and vulnerable House Republicans. CAP notes where the B-B-C team uses the same language as President Bush to describe their proposals -- although, to be fair, criticizing the GOP for wanting an Alternative Minimum Tax fix is questionable. We'll learn more details on a conference call later today.
