Pro-tax Party


Democrats on the talk shows this weekend seem to think that the politically popular thing to do is to defend tax hikes. HHS Secretary Sebelius said on Meet the Press that the income tax surcharge is a “legitimate way to go forward,” while Charlie Rangel said on Face the Nation that “I don’t see the executive branch being able to set the course if they can’t raise the taxes.” I don’t think that this strategy is going to make their government-heavy health bills any easier to pass.
