Kaus Monster-Post on Obama & Payroll Taxes

"Maybe Obama feels it's politically easier to tax the rich than to cut their benefits." Or maybe it's a surreptitious first step towards means-testing! Getting at this via a donut-hole in payroll tax liability is counterintuitive, even slightly contrarian... Kaus thinks he likes it! (Yet remains suspicious: why aren't "orthodox Democrats" more up in arms?)

Read the whole shebang. It's his best post since this clever disquisition on vulgar Marxism back in April.
