The gist of it is, ignored whilst the finger-pointing is going on, that taxes are 'increasing' to the levels of the Clinton presidency. I note here and now for the record that Mr. Clinton was and is a Democrat.
I also note that (1) they weren't the end of the world; (2) my reaction to Mr. Bush's 'tax cut' was to observe that at the end of the week, I still wouldn't have enough 'given back' to buy a decent cigar.
This is, it seems, Ragnarok for those of us fortunate enough to make over $100k per year. Which, I note, includes every bloody member of the Congress assembled. Who, predictably, are rabble-rousing those less fortunate.
So let us examine this. Bill Clinton was an economic genius, bringing peace, prosperity and overall good to us when he was president, but whose taxes are now going to ruin the nation. Boo hoo.Get a grip. Preferably with a rope around members of both houses necks. And the media, oi veh is mir, the media. Even slow-hanging is too good for them.
Oh, and Happy New Year.
