From the NYT:
This conversation keeps coming back to mind because, in the last couple of weeks, I have been on one television panel after another, talking about how questionable it is that the country is enjoying what economists call full employment while we are still running a federal budget deficit of roughly $434 billion for fiscal 2006 (not counting off-budget items like Social Security) and economists forecast that it will grow to $567 billion in fiscal 2010.
When I mentioned on these panels that we should consider all options for closing this gap--including raising taxes, particularly for the wealthiest people--I was met with several arguments by people who call themselves conservatives and free marketers.
By the way something, even former-dickhead Ben Stein says the Iraq War is a failure.
