Another Leftist Admits the Real Goal Is Taxing the Middle Class

Nobody bites on the idea of increasing spending by "only" 2.5% a year. Why? Well, I suspect even that won't work because a lot of our increasing deficit going forward is not accounted for. The approximately $100 trillion actuarial obligation to Social Security and Medicare is NOT in the projections done by our "non-partisan" CBO or other groups, who use static models and project only 10 years based on fictional numbers (borrowing from Social Security "Trust Fund," "doc fix," double counting the "peace dividend,"... name your favorite). We need more pundits like Dan Mitchell keeping the heat on this issue and asking the obvious questions. The growth of government can NOT continue without destroying our economy.

Obama has staked out a very dogmatic and inflexible position on class-warfare tax hikes and he obviously wants all of us to think only the “rich” will be impacted.

I think it’s foolish to penalize investors, entrepreneurs, small business owners and other upper-income taxpayers. What nation, after all, has ever prospered by placing obstacles in front of those who create jobs? France? Don’t make me laugh.

But I’m also amazed that anyone believes Obama isn’t going to screw the middle class as well. The simple reality is that there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government.
