Birth Tax?

The imbecile boy king once again addressed the serfs in an extended hallucinatory riff, otherwise known as the State of the Empire speech. Quoth he:
Our generation has been blessed by the expansion of opportunity, by advances in medicine, by the security purchased by our parents' sacrifice. Now, as we see a little gray in the mirror -- or a lot of gray -- (laughter) -- and we watch our children moving into adulthood, we ask the question, what will be the state of their union? Members of Congress, the choices we make together will answer that question. Over the next several months, on issue after issue, let us do what Americans have always done and build a better world for our children and our grandchildren.

There you go, kiddies! What do you think about your "better world"?

When I was a kid growing up in the 80's, the Federal deficit was growing, the sky was falling, and my generation's future children were going to have half their paychecks going to pay down the debt.

Then in the 90's, the growth in the tech sector boosted the economy and the deficit became a surplus in just a few years.

So much for my generation's children having to pay half their income in taxes to pay off that debt.

Now the economy went through a recession, and suddenly the sky is falling again, and my children's future kids will have to pay half their income towards the deficit.


I don't know what's worse: the liberals who actually believe the sky is falling, or those cynical enough to know better, but nevertheless use the fear-mongering for political capital.
