Writes CM reader S. Irizarry:

General Wesley Clark (a potential presidential candidate) was interviewed on Meet the Press earlier this month. Responding to the interviewer’s question as to whether the General supported the Bush tax cut, he had this to say:

Secondly, the tax cuts weren’t fair. I mean, the people that need the money and deserve the money are the people who are paying less, not the people who are paying more. I thought this country was founded on a principle of progressive taxation. [MSNBC, June 15, 2003]

The US didn’t have a progressive tax initially because it was deemed unconstitutional. That didn’t change until 1913. Point 2 of the Communist Manifesto is: “A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.”
