Let us hear again about how bad high taxes on the top margin of American income earners would be. How it would destroy the business class of America and lead to national ruin. Let us hear again how we should return to the good ole days of American pie, baseball without steroids, olde tyme values and low taxes.
To be clear, I am no fan of high taxes. My views on taxation have more to do with getting a return on investment on tax dollars spent and doing the job right when the job is done with tax dollars. This has little to do with the false big government vs. small goverment choice, or liberalism vs. conservatism. The real difference lies between effective government and kleptocracy.
Back in the good ole days of the 40's and 50's, we had taxes so high modern "conservatives" would all die of shock. And yet, how we spent those tax dollars made us the most powerful nation the Earth has ever seen.
But don't let actual history get in the way of talk radio narratives.
