Thinking like a Democrat

Kevin Drum while praising to the high heavens Wes Clark's tax plan shows how liberals typically regard other people's money:

The super rich have seen their pay increase by over 5x in the past couple of decades while their marginal tax rates have decreased by about 50%. Surely someone whose income has gone up from $1 million to $5 million can afford to give back a bit of that? This is a case we ought to be able to make.

"Give back"? Cutting someone's tax cut doesn't "give" them anything. They are getting to keep what was already theirs. Liberals regard your money as the government's so when the government "gives" it back to you by reducing your rate rate you should be puckering up and giving them a big wet kiss.

And the super rich were not the only ones to have seen their pay increase. In the past 20 years, my pay increased 4x. I am hardly among the super rich. Class warfare is alive and kicking. The Clark plan is just another battle in the war. The weathiest 1% among us, a term Al Gore must have whiningly said 5 million times, pay the bulk of income taxes now. The 'innovative' Clark plan will force them to pay it all. Pandering politics at its best. Divisive and unfair. That doesn't matter though does it? Liberals lap up class warfare crap like this.

This plan is what is considered fair by people like Clark. One group pays for everything. I would bet that if he took me to dinner every night and I insisted that he always pay for it because he made more money than I did, I would soon hear him ask me if that was fair.
