Spread the pain around

Posted on August 3, 2011 by


I actually have no problem “spreading the wealth around” a bit, as long as the pain is also spread around a bit. Apparently, our lawmakers agree with me and have planned for a 2% rise in tax rates from their current levels.

Of course, the most interesting things right now are:

  1. What is the new fiscal budget going to look like, come September?
  2. When does QE3 start?
  3. Who will be in the new Super Congress?
  4. Is anyone going to bother to vote in 2012, or should we just start packing our bags and moving en mass to Chile?
