The big power grab

New York Daily News
by Michael Goodwin

06/14/09

Big government is on a big roll. As Washington moves from bailing out banks to setting pay levels, from bailing out automakers to deciding which local dealerships will be closed, each day brings fresh evidence of its growing role in what used to be the private economy. It is happening at a breathtaking pace, driven not just by the economic crisis but also by deliberate policies of the Obama White House and Democrats in Congress.

Much of the discussion to date about health care reform has understandably focused on the contents of the reform plan itself. But with the plan expected to cost $1-1.5 trillion over the first ten years, an equally important question is how the president and congressional Democrats plan to pay for it. While we won’t know for certain until we see the final bill, it looks like the answer is going to be higher — much higher — taxes. And many if not most of those taxes will fall squarely on the middle class...
