Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Democrats on Obama’s fiscal commission: Hey, how’s about some “pro-growth” tax increases?

Oh. My. (Insert politically correct deity here). Details:

Two immovable facts face Democrats on President Obama’s fiscal commission: They don’t see any way to alleviate the country’s debt without raising taxes, and they know most voters hate the thought of any tax increase.

Leading Democrats on the commission tried during the first week of meetings to finesse their way toward a discussion of what they consider inevitable — by arguing that any tax hikes would be “pro-growth.”

“If we can put forward some practical proposals that control the rate of spending in the future and that raise revenues in a pro-growth way, I think we’ll get a hearing in the Congress,” said Alice Rivlin, a former White House budget director for President Jimmy Carter, who is one of 18 commission members.

The “pro-growth” tax increases can be found on Aisle 9, between the dry water and the sober Kennedys. Pixies that fart calorie-free chocolate are on the next aisle.

The only growth that tax increases spur is the growth of government. Eventually, though, the government runs out of other people’s money. But the more that taxes are put onto society, the more money that exits the hands of the private sector. And for those of you who are economic illiterates or liberals (pardon the redundancy), it is the private sector that fuels the economy, not the federal government.

You know why B.O.’s commission is doing this, don’t you?  See, Oprompter promised in 2008 that none of your taxes of any kind would be raised (a promise he has repeatedly violated since then).  He’s since tried to be Clintonesque by saying that he was talking about income taxes, not any other kind of taxes (which, of course, is a d#mned lie).  By having this “fiscal commission” dedicated to trimming the deficit saying that tax increases are needed (because cutting spending is apparently never an option with the left), President Training Wheels can say “Well, I wasn’t going to raise taxes, but Bush’s economy sucked far worse than I thought, so I’m gonna have to take the advice of this commission and raise your taxes.  Sorry about that.”  You know, it’s not his idea, but the idea of the “non-partisan” fiscal commission.

How’s that Obama Kool-Aid tasting now, you libfools?

  1. “pro-growth” tax hikes?

    Wow. Just…wow.

    I think Obama might need to change his campaign tagline before 2012. “Oxymorons you can believe in” would be more apropos.
