Good Stuff From Fred

By on 9.2.08 | 10:42PM

From Thompson's speech (as prepared -- I think he might have made a trivial change):

Now our opponents tell you not to worry about their tax increases.

They tell you they are not going to tax your family.

No, they're just going to tax "businesses"! So unless you buy something from a "business", like groceries or clothes or gasoline ... or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small "business", don't worry ... it's not going to affect you.

They say they are not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the "other" side of the bucket! That's their idea of tax reform.

That's as good a riposte to economic populism as I've seen in quite a while.
