Ross Douthat Calls Out Obama's Dishonesty

No, raising taxes on the rich won't fix anything.
Alas for liberals, the tax debate isn’t that simple, because it’s taking place in the context of immense projected future deficits and a welfare state that seems unsustainable without substantial increases in revenue. Given these realities, fairness and progressivity are necessarily less important to liberalism over the long run than simple dollar figures, and the American left actually has a long-run incentive to make the federal tax code less progressive, because only a broader base can keep the liberal edifice solvent in the long run.
