Barack, Can We Talk

This week Presidential candidate Barack Obama was on vacation visiting his senior citizen Grandmother in Hawaii (she lives there). This week the Obama’s campaign also announced their own “no tax” policy: senior citizens making less than $50K should pay no taxes. I can imagine the conversation over the Obama dinner table. “Barack, sweetheart, you know  I pay way too much in taxes and I make less than $50K. That’s not fair.” Obama, who has said that tax policy should be based not on increasing revenues or improving the economy but on “fairness”, must have taken his Grandmother’s pleading to heart. I’d like to invite Obama to dinner so I can plead my case that people who start their own businesses employing lots of people in high paying jobs should not pay taxes. I think that’s fair.
