Tax cuts are on the intellectual offensive in the City of Brotherly Love, even though I think the political will for them will lag far behind for a long while, if not forever. Remember, this is also the city with the most rapacious, violent unions in the country, where there’s always a clamor for more “services” (ultimately a fig-leaf for paying Democratic precinct-captains-cum-city workers well above-average salaries to sit around City Hall offices doing nothing). It’s great that city Democrats appreciate what we were saying all these years about the job-killing effects of high taxes. Now let’s see them do something about it.
