"It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place." - The Red Queen in Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carrol
Ok, I give up. The Bush tax cuts were ... wait for it ... progressive. Neal Boortz and the "free market" champions at the NCPA win ... my brain feels like its going to snap trying to keep up with all reality revision. Yes, our tax system has been growing more progressive for the last two decades.
Yeah, sure, these folks say different. But they gotta be liberals, right? And we know liberals are communists. And socialists. And fascists. It's not like you can expect communist Marxist socialist liberal fascist Progressives like David Cay Johnston to report the truth about how great the Bush tax cuts were for the middle class.
Update: I've seen the light I tell you. Soon, I'll write something explaining how the elimination of the estate tax is progressive because it primarily benefits the destitute.
