Cui bono? To whose benefit?

December 16th, 2010 by Rick Drain

I have a question for my conservative friends:

I’m pretty certain that none of you is in the “earning more than $1M/year” tax bracket.  How do you feel about giving each of the people in that bracket an average of $100,000?

You realize, don’t you, that what they don’t pay, you will?  They haven’t proposed any way to shrink government spending, they just don’t want to pay for it themselves.  You’re cool with effectively giving them some of your money?

I look forward to your comments.
