Redistribute, And Salute!

I'm not encouraged by this:

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America." Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."

If you really love our nation,
you will welcome new taxation.

In turn, we'll spare no expense
as we welcome your dollars and cents.

Cost Effective

Baroness Warnock, described as a top British medical ethicist:
If you're demented, you're wasting people's lives – your family's lives – and you're wasting the resources of the National Health Service.
Ann Althouse comments:
Quite aside from guilt and a sense of duty, it would be easy to wrest consent out of people by offering high quality health care to those who agree in advance to be murdered if they get too expensive.
Be careful of letting your personal health
depend upon taxing others' wealth.
