(updated) Bad haircut coming up . . .
if Hillary has her say
Headlining an appearance with other Democratic women senators on behalf of Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is up for re-election this year, Hillary Clinton told several hundred supporters – some of whom had ponied up as much as $10,000 to attend – to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed by President Bush if Democrats win the White House and control of Congress.
“Many of you are well enough off that … the tax cuts may have helped you,” Sen. Clinton said. “We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
Move to New Jersey, Hillary, and sing along with McGreevy, who’s trying to “take things away” for G-d knows what. I don’t see any good — common or uncommon — out of this. As Val says, I work damn hard for my money.
Update Dr Sowell asks Low Taxes Do What?
What Reagan’s “tax cuts for the rich” actually cut were the tax rates per dollar of income. Out of rising incomes, the country as a whole—including the rich—paid more total taxes than ever before.
So much for taking things away from us.
