Krugman averred we wont be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes, possibly including a value-added tax, and decisions about health care, which is a nice way of saying rationing.
Krugman concluded: So the snarky version which I shouldnt even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.
Why are we hearing this from a marxist like Krugman but not the GOP? It is simple. There are just not enough “rich” to pay for the all the goodies. The economy isn’t growing under the Obama Plan. It’s isn’t going to get any better in the Age of Obama.
The problem is 80% of dim voters don’t want to hear that. It needs to be pounded into their thick skulls until they get it. That is where the GOP fails. Too much work I guess.

What Krugman and the rest of them don’t understand is that “society” wants a lot LESS government. If we had less government, we wouldn’t need the taxes we have now.
