"Whenever Congress raises taxes, instead of paying down the deficit, they spend the money." ~ Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize winning economist Nothing has changed since he said that almost 50 years ago.

In the wake of the 2012 election, Republican leaders and some "conservative" (sic) pundits are suggesting that it's imperative that Republicans in the House soften their position on tax hikes. The day after the election, House Speaker Boehner all but forfeited conservative opposition.

Soon after, Bill Kristol (a commentator who has lost his conservative credentials and shouldn't be confused with comedian Billy Crystal) attempted to excuse this cave by stating "It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires."

Our political and opinion "leaders" are completely missing...
