Rhymes With Tax

With the national debt reaching astronomical and unsustainable heights, with 10% unemployment and decreasing consumer confidence, Jeffrey Sachs, of Time Magazine, says the answer to our problems is simple. He argues that the United States should be more like Europe, that the United States has the lowest tax rates in the industrialized world, and that raising taxes, not reducing spending, is the only sensible and moral answer. 



Jeffrey Sachs, he rhymes with Tax

Says we should be like Norway

Or Spain or Greece, despite the facts

That show, Jeff, going your way

Will lead to higher taxes still

And higher unemployment

Insuring that the government will

Bring massive debt enjoyment

We’re much too much like Europe now

In debt up to our tookus

But guys like Jeffrey always bow

To lefty schemes to cook us
