I kind of like the goats, especially those on the Sage of Mt. Airy's farm, where I blog from today. The Sage dissects Dr. Charles Krauthammer (a former Hubert Humphrey speechwriter, btw) on the debt deal.
To begin, removing "loopholes" has only lately, and conveniently, become a demand of the American Left. The fact is, various loopholes, alongside a progressive income tax scheme with multiple and increasing marginal rates have historically been the bedrock of liberal tax policy....
With all due respect to Dr. Krauthammer, the only sure solution to the debt crisis is the very real prospect of electoral defeat by the Democrats, not contracting clever deals with them.
RTWT. And scroll down to read the Sage beating up on many conservatives who caved to liberals and shunned the Tea Party on the debt negotiations.
