    Seriously.  It's not a goal.  It's a means to an end.  The end is revenue, and avoiding cuts to social insurance programs that people have paid into all their lives, and that Wall Street is slobbering after.  I do not insist on any particular revenue stream and I do not care how the Congress sorts them out as long as they find revenue without hurting the middle class and the poor.

    All the talk in DC and from the President is about taxing the rich.  This is a shiny object, meant to distract from what they are actually trying to do to us, to you, as opposed to their rich donors.
