Over at Hot Air they are advocating giving Americans a paid-for government with all of the bread and circuses Obama supporters are demanding. They will pay for this with a massive tax hike. The author is suggesting that Rush Limbaugh promote this. Americans want their goodies but they hate the national debt. Okay, this is how you get goodies that are paid for: radical tax increases.
America can have a Euro-style welfare as long as there is Euro-style funding. All we need to do is increase taxes on the median-income family by 60% and the top marginal rate to 70%. Americans can have all the bread and circuses they want. To hell with it! Let’s give Americans the government for which they voted. Let’s give it to them good and hard!
Maybe, just maybe, this approach would cause Obama’s thick headed supporters to actually put some thought to their demands.
