Democrat on the ropes discovers Reagan’s rules

I am late getting this up but it is oh so instructive. It also shows that while all Democrats may not understand … at least one says he does. I just couldn’t decide whether to make this an economics or political post. Hope I got it right.

From Friday’s morning Joe, NY Governor David Patterson tells Mika, first no soda tax (which he had proposed¬†earlier) and no millionaire’s tax either. “What we’ve found is that they just aren’t millionaires anymore, or they have left the state.”

Has he found religion? Hmmmm. It is disturbing that he says “at this time”, when it comes to raising taxes. Watch the whole;e thing. As I said instructive.


So when Democrats find themselves caught in a budget whirlpool, plunging poll numbers, and a rising tide of fiscal conservatism, they turn to what again? Just askin’, is all.

    Hmmmm.   Why is it that the guy that is legally blind is the only one that can see the truth?
