There is a seduction in Ann's suggestion. However, I fear that the resulting severe recession and resultant expanding "inequality" will be used as a pretext for even higher taxes and then the people included will be those over $100k or something similar.

We see the beginnings now with California, Illinois, and New York. The Founding Fathers are laughing . . .

But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
