Add Sarah Palin to the list of politicos who are not happy about the tax cut package President Barack Obama crafted with Republican lawmakers.
“I think it’s a lousy deal and we can do better for the American people,” the former Alaska governor said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” airing Friday.
Palin, a former Republican vice presidential nominee, said it’s an issue that would be best left to the new Congress that will be sworn-in in January.
“It is better to wait until they are seated and get a good deal for the American public than to accept what I think is a lousy deal, because it creates a temporary economy with even more uncertainty for businesses and it does increase taxes,” Palin said.
Palin, one of the potential challengers to Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign, expressed gratitude for his compromise — or as she put it his “flip flop” — on his original promise not to extend tax cuts to people making more than $250, 000 per year.
