First let me say I don’t like the big deficits either. Now:
Is it just me or do all these worst-of-the-worst doomsday scenarios we can find in teh memrandium seem to exist in some alternate reality where the dissolution of the Union, the charring of the Earth and a Mad-Max style dystopian future are more likely and/or desirable than raising taxes on the middle class somewhat and on the upper classes significantly? Fucking shit people, if we just act rationally the worst that you’ll have to deal with is a reduction in your take-home pay… .. .
Eh, who am I kidding.
