“Hey, Sucker! Thanks for Still Paying Taxes!” That’s probably not a campaign slogan our friends on the right want to see on bumper stickers any time soon. Still, it does kind of reflect their policy positions.
You’d think a blue collar guy like Joe the Plumber would get this. You’d think Sarah Palin might be saying, “I can see Mitt Romney’s tax returns from here.” But when one person cheats on his or her taxes, then the rest of us poor schmucks have to pay to make up the difference. Or run a deficit. Whatever.
The Tea Party certainly hates deficits; but they’re blind, deaf and dumb when it comes to this issue.
