<quoted text>Honestly I just think it's fun to debate this, plus it's driving Flack nuts :)
It is an interesting academic discussion.
It will cause the constitutionalists to think a little.
There is nothing anyone can say to those who want government by political whim. Hopefully, things won't worsen to the degree where they have to learn that lesson the hard way.

GM's 4Q earnings equate to a profit sharing bonus of $6,750. Each of the Detroit Three issue large bonus checks this year Homer, looks like the bailout was a good thing and 2013 is projected to be better than 2012.

Flacknomics: Paying more in taxes because you make more money is a tax increase.

Corollary: When the Republicans call for tax cuts, they want people to make less money.
