"Barack Obama and the Democrats may well get higher tax rates. But it's not likely that high tax rates can ever generate enough revenue to fund unreformed entitlement programs."
Wow. I think you may have pushed the art of understatement to its ultimate absurdity, Mr. Barone.
And this is why the bland, blah, blah, blah of the mainstream media puts people to sleep, and why nobody is able to "get" this tax policy issues.
Why don't you do a little real work. I'd like to know how many small businesses would be affected by the change in rates. I'd like to see a little discussion about baseline budgeting. I'd like to hear an explanation of Hauser's law, to which you allude without attribution.
