David Harsanyi gives Joe Biden a mild correction:

Biden claims that wealthier Americans should pay more in taxes
because, “It’s time to be patriotic . . . time to jump in, time to be
part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

Oh, the injustice of American society!

When exactly did taxation transform into a form of charity? Biden, it
seems, has a difficult time differentiating between coercion and
generosity. The distinction is simple: When one fails at altruism, he
is a louse; when one fails to pay taxes, he ends up in the slammer.

OK, so maybe not so mild. Read the whole thing.
