The Associated Press has coverage of a visit to Capitol Hill by Patriotic Millionaires for higher taxes. The article is among the "most popular" stories on Yahoo! News this morning. My favorite part is the response from the president of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist:
"If you think the federal government can spend your money better than you can, then by all means" pay more in taxes than you owe, said Grover Norquist, of Americans for Tax Reform, a group that has gotten almost all congressional Republicans to pledge to vote against tax hikes. The IRS should have a little line on the form where people can donate money to the government, he suggested, "just like the tip line on a restaurant receipt."
Mr. Norquist is so good at framing these issues. And I mean that without any sarcasm. He really is good at it.
