Ted Rall for March 29, 1997
Woman 1: Our overcrowded schools are killing our kids... but the government just doesn't have the money. Man 1: We could always raise taxes on the rich. Man 2: Social Security is screwed! Everyone under 35'll be eating trash when they retire! Man 1: The max tax rate was 90% in the '60s. We could do that again. Man 3: People die every day because they can't afford a doctor... but socialized medicine is too expensive! Man 1: An extra 10% tax on income over $100,000 would bring in $40 billion a year. Man 4: I spend hours stuck in traffic every day... but who has the cash for new bridges and highways? Man 1: Rich people get the most out of our economy. They should pay the most for it! Woman 2: This budget cut madness has gone too far... our military has been totally emasculated! Man 1: The rich pay less taxes than the middle class... that ought to change! Woman 2: We should ask the city to bury him... but with what money?
