Glad to see the left is stumbling through to Jimmy Carter redux. I bought a shirt from one of the websites that has The One’s picture on it with the caption “Welcome Back, Carter.” I wear it for my trainer, who is a serial apologist for, among other things, ObamaCare. I keep explaining to him that when the tax increases get high enough, his services will be the first thing that “rich” people like me will have to cut out. He says that’s a question of priorities, to which I respond that he’s setting my priorities for me! We often spend the rest of the hour in silence.
No better lesson in economics could be given.
