51. How could it possibly get killed
when what you posted is the pretext to what I've proposed.

I've already implied that taxes are necessary to sustain the things you've listed. What I'm doing is simply extending it beyond that and saying, look...we Democrats realize that taxes are necessary, and as long as they're necessary we need to re-phrase our stance on them so it puts us in a light of being pro-American about it, instead of simply being regarded as tax raisers all the time.
