I do find it ironic that the piddling $80 billion tax increase on the rich is exactly the same as the massive $80 billion cost for food stamps. Perhaps the Republicans should agree to the food stamp tax hike and declare that the rich are now doing their fair share; they're providing food stamps for all. They should then request that food stamp recipients show their gratitude and recognize the kind gesture and sacrifice of the wealthy.

Give in and it will never be enough. When a group can say that the taxpayers who pay the vast majority of taxes are not paying their fair share, then even if the top 5% was paying all the taxes, it would still never be enough for them.

A version of this column appeared originally in THE DAILY BEAST.

Both presidential candidates describe this election as the most important choice in a generation and insist that the outcome will fatefully shape the direction of government and society.

But voters can’t make a meaningful decision when the discussion during the last month of the campaign (and, undoubtedly, much of the televised debate on Wednesday night) will be based on shameless, embarrassing lies.

Those lies flow most egregiously (but not exclusively) from the President of the United States.

Every day Barack Obama frames the electoral decision as a stark choice...
