  1. On Gates and Buffet's idea: It's not going to happen but mechanism's could be put in place to take away half their fortunes through taxation. Or better still, to tax them at a higher rate in order to come up with a solution for the fix we're in.

    While the supplysiders continue to harp on cutting taxes, cutting taxes, cutting taxes. Which has about as much chance of happening as the government receiving half of the billionaires' fortunes. The former of course not being possible in a nation that has been led to the brink of failure by the tax cutting past president.
