Bullseye ...

I read Howard Dean's piece in the Wall Street Journal, and was thinking of blogging about it, but PoliPundit has already got it just right, in this summary of Howard Dean's core beliefs.

  • The slow economy is caused by the federal budget deficit, not vice-versa.
  • The deficit is caused by "tax cuts for the rich."
  • The deficit should be fixed by raising taxes.
  • Taxes should be raised on everyone, not just "the rich."
  • The taxes raised must then be spent on socialist healthcare, rather than fixing the deficit.
  • It's OK to run a deficit to implement socialist healthcare.
  • War on Terror? What War on Terror?
