In Calls to “Tax the Rich,” Boxer Can Include Herself

Senator Barbara Boxer came to town yesterday to make political hay at the expense of her fellow super-privileged and the economically illiterate. She is reported to have called to “make millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share” nearly a dozen times in the course of her public appearance.

That’s all very nice and fine, Barbara, but you ought at least use the correct pronoun: that “their” should have been “our.”

Yes, Barbara is, indeed, a members of the famed Senate’s “millionaires club.”

At least Warren Buffet admits his desire to punish his own productivity. Why doesn’t someone give them the address for the U.S. Treasury and let them know they can send in as much as they want—of their own money.
