While conservative Democrats were winning races on tax cut platforms, voters were rejecting higher taxes on the ballot. In California, two major tax increases, one on cigarettes and the other on oil production were defeated and in Missouri, a measure to raise the tax on cigarettes was also defeated.

Ms. Pelosi better hear the call, or she won’t be Speaker very long.  Then again, now that she controls Congress, her party won’t have to expose its true agenda so directly to the voters.
