John Edwards says if he's elected president, he'll institute a New Deal-like suite of programs to fight poverty and stem growing wealth disparity. To do it, he said, he'll ask many Americans to make sacrifices, like paying higher taxes.
Yeah, he's gonna "ask" us to make sacrifices.
And, as part of this humble favor he'll ask of us upon his ascension to the White House, he promises tax audits, heavy fines, and possible prison time for those of us who choose not to acquiesce.
How very "progressive", indeed.
And, at the risk of repeating myself:
Tell you what, Pretty Boy. The day you tear down your multi-million dollar waterfront vacation home and turn it into a safe nesting ground for the local piping plover population, transform your palatial 28,000 sf mansion into a 200-bed inpatient rehab clinic, and move your family into a modest 2,000 square foot home on an acre of land is the day I think about recognizing you as more than an annoying little speck of dust on the coffee table of humankind.
