Tax Gluttons Cheered on by Media
My goodness, the Hike Up Your Taxes rally at Springfield Wednesday where thousands of recipients of state largesse are shouting “more!” has Rich Miller of Capitol Fax blog in ecstasy. He streamed all the news and ordered his “interns” to follow it closely. Oh, the Humanity! Capitol Fax both the newsletter and blog is known as the unalloyed cheerleader for expanded state services. Faithful to every murmur of the Madigans…almost lip-synch with the Democratic establishment… the letter and blog are nevertheless a rich compendium of information. Everywhere I used to go in Springfield, visiting offices, I would see the original faxed newsletter on every desk…in every “in basket.” The state legislators, agencies you name it. An impressive total. At $350 per he devolves great support for his journalism from government. No wonder he’s excited about higher taxes.
I guess they’re really diverse at this one–looks like two kinds of signs. [In contrast, Chicago TaxDayTeaParty] Yes, they were bused in.
