    Criminy. Why do we tax them at all? They earned it, they should be able to keep it. That's the logic I'm hearing hereabouts, right? Nobody should be taxed, I'm assuming. Not just the rich. Nobody.

    I want to know then - how are you going to run the country.

    He's not Alan Enron.

    "Enron (which has given $103,250 to Texans for Lawsuit Reform) is now suing its would-be corporate rescuer, Dynegy, even as it faces a slew of investor lawsuits.4

    "In the Bush White House, Enron Chair Ken Lay reportedly is the only executive who got a private audience to discuss the administration�s energy policy with Vice President Dick Cheney.

    "Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chair Curt Hebert also resigned shortly after he said that Lay told him that he would lose Enron�s support in the White House if he kept opposing open access to privately owned power lines.

    "Bush promptly replaced Hebert with Texas Public Utility Commis-sioner Pat Wood, who had Enron�s blessing.

    "Governor Rick Perry, who received the next largest chunk of Enron money, appointed former Enron de Mexico President Mario Max Yzaguirre as Public Utility Commission chair in June 2001."

    Enron

    He's also such an insufferable tool that his constituents threw his ass out of congress last time around.

    That wasn't even a good try at deflection, numbnuts.

    Oh boo fucking hoo.... Nobody said that nobody should be taxed. Go drop a few Xanbars and calm the hell down.

    Geeze Louise.

    All quoting Alan Grayson does is prove beyond all doubt that you're a clueless moron.

    I didn't realize Grayson was still relevant. Isn't he the guy that lost his reelection bid in a landslide after just one embarrassing term?

    Just for you:

    "Wow. Despite Alan Grayson losing his election last in November, he has not softened up, at all. Case in point, his tour de force on the House floor earlier today. The issue at hand? The Bush Tax Cuts, that Grayson alleges only benefits the wealthiest Americans. The targets? The conservatives talking heads that populate Fox News every evening, often championing the very Bush Tax cuts at hand.

    "The strategy?

    "Demonstrate just how much each pundit stands to make by the extending of the tax cuts. The result? Brilliant television that is certain to both get attention and rile Grayson’s adversaries. Just what he wants."

    Are you riled, richbitch?
