Buy War Bon- er, RaiseTaxes!

Blah Blah Blah Bridge to Nowhere Blah Blah Blah

[...]
In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Biden said wealthier taxpayers would indeed pay more under the proposals of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Under his plan, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of American taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.
[...]
Yeah, that'll work. Let's raise taxes for people who run the big corporations. They have stockholders to answer to, who expect the company to make X amount of money each year. Taxes go up, prices go up. Remember when we were paying almost $5.00 per gallon of gas? It wasn't because oil prices stayed the same and oil execs raised the price at the pump, it was because the price of oil went up, and execs are obligated to maintain a profit margin.
Now why the price of oil went up is a whole different gouge.

But in the end, the price trickled down to the end consumer. Just like what will happen if taxes are raised.

Let's see now, there must be something the government can do...How about not spending money they don't have? I don't, why can't they?
I could live with a few potholes that didn't get fixed right a way. Or maybe one less 4 star chef cooking lunch at the White House or governor's mansion. Maybe that money could be used for something else.

You really need a content warning page on this blog.

I'm wondering, if things keep on like they are, will it be another split vote, right down the middle, with the Dems saying we stole the election on dimpled chads. And if it does, will they roll over this time? I doubt it.

I hope it's a fucking blowout one way or the other.
