“I hate to say this on FOX – and I hope I’ll be allowed to leave here alive – but I don’t think there is any way we can cut spending enough to make a meaningful difference. We are going to have to raise taxes on very rich people; people with incomes of like say, 2, 3 million a year and up, and then slowly move down.”
– Conservative economist Ben Stein on FOX News.
This is Earth-shattering! A well-known conservative saying taxes should be raised on the upper classes! I know Stein must have been terrified; feeling like a Jew in a Catholic church during Easter mass. But, the facts are what they are. Mitt Romney’s economic scam – er – plan just doesn’t add up. I can only hope at this point that the American people will see that I’m right, especially in the so-called swing states.
