Now They Tell Us: Howard Dean Says Everyone Must Pay Higher Taxes to Pay For Obama's Mega-State

We didn't hear this, surprisingly enough, before the election. What we heard was the claim that Obama wanted to raise taxes on the "richest 1%" (now the richest 2%; the second richest 1%, sorry, here's a tissue to wipe up your mouth). He claimed he wanted to reduce taxes on the middle class, and even claimed Romney would raise taxes on the middle class.

Which, by the way, was the lie he won the election on. By charging Romney with this, he immunized himself from the truth -- that Barack Obama himself planned to raise taxes on the middle class.

Now that the liberals have won an election on a lie, they can start floating these trial balloons to see if the public is ready for them.

And the truth is that if week keep spending at this level, the rich, the middle class, and even some of the working poor are going to have to pay more in taxes.

The money isn't "free." It comes from somewhere. Unfortunately, we can't tax the Germans as the Greeks can, so we'll have to tax ourselves.

I have long believed that Obama's goal was to set up a crisis situation whereby Republicans are forced to call for his own goal of higher taxes on everyone in order to forestall an actual meltdown and the ensuing calamity.

I've seen nothing yet to convince me I was crazy to think that.

Excusez-moi, il y avait une erreur inévitable avec mon pénis.

By the way, people are questioning why I'd learn French.

They are extremely racist. So, they've got that going for them.
