    this is where "liberal" policy has ended up: a theoretical tax increase that hits only a handful of voters at the very top of the income scale.

    It used to be that fairness meant people making a contribution based on society's actual need. We used to tax income above a certain level at 90% and had a balanced budget and a thriving economy.

    Now, we have a Democratic party that is afraid to raise taxes even on the rich. Only the ultra rich are fair game, even then only as part of a political gesture.
