And the city of Los Angeles may add another half cent sales tax inside LA. Liberals want high taxes everywhere, that is why I oppose their policies. When the govt takes from the rich, the rich just take from us with higher prices.
Later Obama will want to do something about global warming and he will probably do some sort of tax on energy that also gets past to us.
No one WANTS higher taxes, just the adults among us recognize that they are NECESSARY as part of a comprehensive fiscal plan. Us "liberals" want to tax the rich, because taxing the rich is less problematic than taxing consumers -- consumers that drive demand.
We don't have a problem with capital right now. Banks and corporations are making record profits and building massive war chests. We have a problem with DEMAND right now. No one is going to hire people just for the sake of hiring people. They have to have a REASON to hire more folks, and the only REASON that makes sense is more DEMAND.
