Raising taxes on the productive sector for politicians to spread around is like lowering the cut of a lawn, collecting the clippings, and dumping the clippings over the brown areas in the lawn so they look green for a few days.
Go figure, the brown dumping ground soon turns brown again and harbors diseases that spread to adjacent areas in a never ending downward spiral. This pretty much describes the current state of our welfare entitlement economy.
And the 'common sense' solution offered by the 'greenskeeper' is what? Raise taxes (lower the mower cut even more) so there's more clippings to spread around? And just how is that supposed to work? Doesn't work for the lawn, won't work for economy.
