If They Knew More Math, Maybe They'd Have Jobs

Yes, I'm talking about the Occupy crowd:
As Occupy Wall Street turns its focus to D.C. this week, its long-term agenda seems to be higher taxes for the top 1% and firmer government support for everyone else.

If so, then what the protesters want — even if they aren't saying it and almost certainly don't even realize it — is higher taxes for the 99%.
Hat tip to Instapundit, from whom I paraphrased the title of this post.

Well, we got ourselves into this mess and it will take some PAIN to get out of it. We need to let the Bush tax cuts expire for ALL (however this will effect the rich more since they got bigger % cuts), AND we need to cut entitlements. To say we can get out of this mess without doing BOTH is just kicking the can. C'mon! Lets do it for future generations. If my grandfather can island-hop throughout the south pacific during WWII (US Marines) then certainly I can swallow more taxes and higher medicare co-pays. The problem is...who to trust with the additional $$. Certainly not the current crop of politicians.

I agree with you. But since I, like you, don't trust the politicians, I want the cuts to come -first-.
