Re: “A ‘Dreadful’ Tax Plan

Interesting article. How are we going to "make America great again" by slashing government? Who is going to fix our roads? In the 1950's with high taxes we built the greatest highway system in the world. Now the Chinese are taking that challenge, their New Silk Road, infrastructure upgrade, high speed trains. This is what makes an economy efficient, not tax cuts.

Re: “Read My Lips: "Now! New Taxes!"

The Norquist pledge, "no new taxes" forever, sounds like a great idea, but it fails in the real world. It was supposed to shrink government but it has only raised debt. Now legislators, faced with the real world, have either made doublespeak legislation to get around the pledge, or abandoned this foolish pledge altogether.

My performance piece, is now on YouTube. It is a political satire, entitled "Taking the Tea Party Republican Tax Pledge". Here is the YouTube link
