For some reason having to do with Facebook algorithms, the FB page of the Illiinois Policy Institute – a right-wing stink tank – frequently appears more often on my status page than do actual friends.
Maybe Facebook just enjoys seeing my blood pressure rise.
They posted this morning:
There’s nothing courageous about telling people that you’ll temporarily raise their taxes and then, a few years after families have adjusted to the “temporary reality,” telling them – surprise! – you’re just going to make it permanent. That’s called lying; not courage.
Apparently breaking a promise, a contract and a constitutional obligation to retirees doesn’t cause the same outrage.
What better represents the moral relativism of the corporate class?
