The Parade of Liars

John & Ken had several Republican lawmakers on their show, promising not to raise taxes. Not only did they conspire to raise taxes, Villines and Cogdill were the Republican leaders in the Assembly and Senate who negotiated the biggest state tax hike in history.

I think that as a rule anytime one of us limited government, fiscal responsibility people decries raising taxes we should spend at least twice as much time talking about reducing spending with specific examples of things that should be eliminated. That's the problem the politicians are trying to solve by raising taxes. We've committed to spending the money on something. The politicians have decided that it's easier politically to raise taxes than it is to reduce services, eliminate entitlements, expose cronyism in subcontracts, streamline operations, rewrite laws or whatever.
