Episode 77 – Sarah Palin, Taxes and the Un-American Way

Sarah Palin, at a Boston Tea Party Express Rally, called the President’s policies “un-American.” Jeff and Glenn dissect the politics of Palin’s comments and explain why the Tea Party movement isn’t so much a movement as it is an organization of voters into a voting block. The amiable hosts take Palin to task for her rantings, and Jeff, the Progressive Democrat, explains how he holds some Republicans in very high regard for their substantive positions — people like Bob Dole, Olympia Snow and Susan Collins. Palin, he explains, it a telegenic quitter, who spews soundbites but surfs over policy details, what we like to call that “brainy substancy” thing. Imagine Abe Lincoln at Gettysburg channeling Sarah Palin. Hard to put the two in the same sentence. And speaking of the absurd, Jeff and Glenn take on the tax system. Incredibly, Jeff defends the payment of taxes, and interestingly Glenn points out that in what we hope would be a fair system, only 47% of Americans actually pay taxes. Glenn offers up a simple alternative: establish a rate along a sliding scale — one that is actually doable and fair, and then pay the tax. Period. everyone in. No deductions. No loopholes.
