On reading Robert Rubin's editorial today, "The Fiscal Delusion," we ought to maintain some semblance of equality--however threadbare--by raising income tax rates on the top 2%. Income taxes are for rich people. Unless we provide basic services, a safety net and oversight, we won't be able to continue to pretend to be a democracy based on equal opportunity for all. Unless the middle class and especially, the rich, want to actively and consciously work to lift up the poor, then we can stop fooling ourselves, tear up the Constitution, and swear allegiance to the Feudal Lord of our choice.
