    The Democrats' ramming through a tax increase on the upper income folks pissed them off severely, and they consequently convinced the public that the Dem's had raised EVERYBODY'S taxes.  Of course that resulted in the budget being balanced for the first time since the '60s, but the Republicans don't really care about a balanced budget anyway.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
