Sarah Palin posed a simple question to her Facebook page yesterday and linked to a letter by Brent Bozell at ForAmerica.
Politicians. Were they lying then or are they lying now?

Speaker Boehner, Leader McConnell, Majority Leader Cantor, and Minority Whip Cornyn,
The 2012 election is over and now is the time to focus on delivering
on the promises you made to the country during the campaign.
With the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, both sides are
making opening gambits and the talk so far is alarming. You led the
Republican Party for two years claiming emphatically that the tax
increase on “the wealthy” that Barack Obama is determined to enact is
really a devastating tax hike on small business owners that would kill
jobs and decimate any kind of economic recovery. Now conservatives see
daily stories asserting that the GOP agrees with the President that
“revenues are on the table” and GOP elite are all over the airwaves
asking if the Tea Party will care if “a few multi-millionaires pay more
in taxes.” That talk is only embolding liberals to demand even higher
taxes. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and others are openly
calling for a return to taxing Americans in the top rate at 91 percent.
Yes that’s ludicrous, but liberals feel comfortable making such
outlandish proposals because they feel you are weak enough that you will
continue to surrender to evermore higher taxes having capitulated once
already. They will never be satisfied. You know that.
Conservatives have one question to ask: If you now claim a tax
increase on small business is the correct course of action, were you
lying all along when you claimed this tax increase would decimate the
economy? Because if you were not lying, you will now be willing
participants in the destruction of American jobs in a time of economic
crisis. This is the question you must answer, given the posturing of
many Republicans in the immediate aftermath of the election. More
