Bill Kristol: Tea Partiers Won't Mind More Taxes

Did I get the math wrong? Obama's opening gambit was a $1.6 trillion tax increase. At best, increasing taxes by letting the Bush cuts expire on millionaires and billionaires (anyone who makes over $200,000 in one year) would raise half of that. The rest would presumably come from us hundredaires and thousandaires.

Bill Kristol just doesn't get the Tea Party and apparently, doesn't understand the Obama tax hike proposal on those making more than $250,000 per year. Last week, Kristol said "it wouldn't kill the country" if we raised taxes on millionaires and yesterday on Fox News Sunday, he said the Tea Party wouldn't mind a tax increase on millionaires, either.

Kristol: A lot of the Tea Party guys don’t care too much if a few millionaires pay couple percent more in taxes, honestly.
