The wisdom of Milton Friedman

George Stephanopoulos:

Chris Coons changed his previous position on the Bush era tax cuts this morning telling me that he would support extending all of the tax cuts for everyone for "several years."

. . .

That contradicts President Obama’s position and Coons’ own campaign website, which states “High-Income Bush Tax Cuts Should Expire on Schedule.”

. . .

With Coons shift he now joins a growing list of Democrats who support extending all of the tax cuts.

Milton Friedman:
It's nice to elect the right people, but that isn't the way you solve things. The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right things.
