Tax Everyone Else

Monty Python used to suggest taxing all foreigners living abroad. Great parody.

The LA Times comes close with this Sunday's headline story "Most in State Expect Some Tax Increases". They report: "The poll found that the public strongly favors increasing taxes in at least several areas. Nearly four out of five Californians back higher taxes on cigarettes and by the same ratio, alcoholic beverages. An overwhelming 69% support raising income taxes on the wealthy."

The wonderfully open-ended question on the last item asked respondents if they would support, "Raising the state income tax rates for the highest-income residents."

Great unintended self-parody.
