BOHICA. Hoyer Wants More Tax Revenues

Many of you are shocked!!!--if you live under a rock.

“No one likes raising revenue, and understandably so,” Hoyer said in an address at the Brookings Institution. “But if you’re going to buy, you need to pay.

“If need be, I am hopeful that both parties will agree to look at revenues as part of the solution — not as a gateway to higher spending, but as part of a compromise that cuts spending and balances the budget,” he added.

Or, as Ace comments,

I love how the idea that spending cuts alone won't work, as if it's ever been tried.

Tiresome, I know.
