Rand Paul: We Should Let Dems Raise Taxes And Then Let Them Own It: We don’t know if he is serious or not but we agree with the sentiment that there should be no compromise. First off it will be devastating for the economy and most especially the middle class people that have seen their cost of living explode over the last four years. Second there is never any compromise. This time will be like all the others. They’ll take all the money coming in from these taxes, before the taxes themselves drop revenue by tanking the economy even further, and with it they’ll buy more votes and crony favors without ever having cut penny one.
