In all the media coverage of the budget talks these many weeks, why is so little being made of the corollary to spending cuts, namely, increased revenues?

To speak of the very wealthy bearing more of the burden usually brings a cry of “income redistribution.”

Has it escaped everyone’s attention that we are already seeing that, except it is going from the bottom to the top of the income spectrum?

Shame on the architects of these plans and the powerful groups behind them. And shame on us who are letting them do it.
