The Beat Goes On

Tim Wise notes that the Governor is still beating the drum for higher taxes.

At least he's consistent.

But I wonder...if the Governor criticizes Republicans for a "...rigid ideological principle that we should always reduce taxes ," could he not also be criticized for a rigid, ideological principle that only more taxes can solve problems? Why yes, he can.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance.
