The Refs Should Stop This Fight

by Steven F. Hayward

Bill Voegeli is at it again over at NoLeftTurns, delivering a WWF-worthy smackdown of Harold Meyerson on the issue of taxing the rich. It’s like watching Mike Tyson handle Pee Wee Herman in the ring. One part of Bill’s post that is especially delightful is his use of one of my favorite (but woefully overlooked) Bill Buckley books, Four Reforms: A Program for the Seventies. This was Bill’s only book-length excursion into pure policy wonkery, and I think it holds up very well and wish he’d done more books like it. But RTWT, as the saying goes.
