Last week, I printed the list of 85 House Republicans, led by Minority Whip Eric Cantor, who sided with the AIG-bashing Democrats demagoguing the bonus issue to cover their own backsides.

Now that these 85 Republicans have signaled their willingness to pass after-the-fact confiscatory taxes to take back “ill-gotten gains” whenever the Dems and the press want to whip up public anger over bailout funds spent on lavish corporate items, I want to know:

Are Minority Whip Cantor and the CYA-on-AIG House Republicans going to join hands when Pelosi/Rangel/Reid et al. cook up a tax scheme targeting JPMorgan’s purchase of new corporate jets and an airplane hangar? What about the next Kabuki Outrage to come along?

What are their grabby hands criteria for passing bills of attainder to take back money in the same hysterical fashion they doled it out in the first place?

Rep. Cantor? Anyone?

You know what? I think you need to see the list of 85 GOP bonus-tax boneheads again. Here it is:
