Re: Caliboredom 101


I don't know jack about finance, so someone please explain to my why raising taxes during a recession is such a terrible thing? It's not like the government just sticks the money under a mattress and guards it like a dragon - they typically use it to pay teachers & police officers & contractors & invest in the type of infrastructure that promotes growth in our economy, no?

And there are so many different types of taxes: I'm sure that raising property taxes would have a very different effect on the economy than raising the sales tax - right? I find it suspicious whenever people lump all taxes together. To me, it sounds like they're just cheap bastards who don't want to pay for anything. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
