  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09

What about taxes?

It seems abundantly clear – now that the Democrats are going to control the White House and the Congress, taxes, in some way, shape or form, are going to go up.  They may only go up on the “rich”, but if you think that higher taxes on the “rich” will not affect the middle class, then Welcome to Fantasyland!

As far as I can remember, The Fair Tax was not discussed at all during this Presidential campaign by either candidate.  It was discussed in the primaries by Mike Huckabee, but not during the general election battle.  So, just as a reminder that the Fair Tax is still out there, here’s a video of John Stossel speaking to a Fair Tax Rally.
