Steve Hayward makes the case that we do need to raise taxes -- but not on the rich:
Hayward goes on to flesh out his argument more, so be sure and read the whole thing over at Powerline. It's an interesting argument, even if it's kind of a non-starter in political circles. Still, there's definitely an underclass in the country that are accustomed to getting something for nothing. The irony being that while Democrats have coasted on stoking this soak-the-rich resentment for decades the bill is coming due. We can't possbly raise enough revenue from rich people to begin to address our current debt issues, and it's the middle class and poor that are going to be hurt when things fall apart.
