The 0.1 Percent Solution: To Save Economy Destroyed by High Taxes and Higher Spending, Obama Proposes Even Higher Taxes and Even Even Higher Spending

Nice.

Remember all that fuss back in 2009 about Obama being a flexible, supple thinker whose wide-ranging mind was unbound by ideological constraints?

Yeah. Good times, good times.

Shot.

he Obama administration sent to Congress legislation that would provide $302 billion for road and transit projects over four years, a measure needed to keep the U.S. Highway Trust Fund from running dry.

The Transportation Department proposal would boost the highway fund $87 billion above current levels to generate more money for deficient bridges and aging transit systems....

The funding proposal is in line with President Barack Obama’s February budget request. House and Senate panels are drafting their own bills and there are no plans in Congress to consider the president’s proposed way to help pay for it: a temporary tax increase on overseas earnings by companies.

Chaser:

Drivers on the nation’s Interstates could soon be paying more to travel.

A transportation proposal sent to Congress by the Obama administration on Tuesday would remove a prohibition on tolls for existing Interstate highways, clearing the way for states to raise revenue on roads that drivers currently use at no cost.



Trivia: Nazareth wanted to call this song "Heir of the Dog," because, I guess, they couldn't just call it "Son of a Bitch." So Son of a Bitch becomes, kind of wittily, "Heir of the Dog."

But the record company wound up changing the title to "Hair of the Dog," but not before printing some thousands of records with the original intended "Heir of the Dog" spelling.

"Hair of the Dog" has nothing at all to do with this song, but I'm using that title as commentary on this post (that is, Obama is offering the hair of the dog to cure the Obama hangover).

I don't know if anything I just told you is true, but it's Lore, much like Elizabeth Warren's Indian heritage.
