RE: Edwards and Taxes

Howard Dean tried a similar gambit in 2003-04 — he challenged voters to trade the Bush tax cuts in their entirety for universal healthcare. Of course, their vision of universal coverage will ultimately require tax increases beyond the repeal of the Bush tax cuts.

Edwards, however, is repeating Bill Clinton’s trick rather than making explicit his desire for across-the-board tax increases. Clinton promised to fund his programs by raising taxes only the rich. Edwards is hoping soak-the-rich politics will trump middle-class families’ concerns about the Democrats grabbing their wallets.
