Apparently the pre-Bush tax levels were “normal,” so any future tax raises would not be tax raises, they would be … not tax raises. They would not exist in space-time.
The question that should occur to the people like us who … question things:
As tax rates have changed countless times in this country’s history, how do you decide which era was “normal?” Can I go back to 1874? I think that would be a cool year for a “baseline.”
Mika Brzezinski isn’t the only person continually employing this argument either, and I would Google the others, but I assume you are already bored.
