More discussion by Democrats on raising middle class taxes

First it was Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and economist Larry Summers who discussed the topic on the Sunday talk shows. Now Democrat Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) chimes in saying: "it is very possible that we would still have to raise taxes, but it is not our intention to do that."

The amazing things to me that he claims: "there is over $2 trillion worth of waste out there in the health care delivery system." I suppose that this fits in with Larry Summers' claim that there is over $700 billion dollars of unneeded surgery occurring.
