    would be considering tax cuts for the rich right now.

    Turns out I can't hear a thing when I yell. All the time I was screaming "Yes We Can!" the pragmatist next to me was hollering "Yes We Can't!"

      Onomastic is justifiable. For example, I believe that Rhode Island just cut their taxes on high earners in order to attract more business (typically headed by high earners) into that state.

      However, I find it hard to believe that federally the reasons why we are having economic problems is because of high taxes on the rich, or that increasing those taxes will cause substantial disincentives to business. We probably can raise taxes on the rich at least somewhat without too much trouble.
