    Did Richardson just admit that the speaker’s tax would be a tax increase? Because if he’s serious about it causing a surplus, then doesn’t that mean the government is bringing in more taxes than under the current plan? Isn’t that what is called a tax increase?

    The only escape I can see is if he argues that the change will cause so much increased economic activity that we’ll all pay about the same rate but have more money passing through our hands to give him a cut of. If that’s the case, I’d like to see an actual study by legitimate organization that shows that will happen. Otherwise it is more of the type of faith based governance loved by the current administration in Washington that hasn’t worked out so well.
