The Truth Will Set You Free

We're beginning to detect a collateral phenomenon generated by the New Dawn ascendancy of the radical wing of the Democrat party: now that they're firmly in the driver's seat, some of them feel free finally to speak the truth. These tidbits of honesty are no surprise to those of us who have long since been making cryptic maps of where we've buried the Krugerrands. But we suspect that the naked contempt for ordinary people will eventually persuade Americans to seek leaders, rather than masters.

Case in point: John "I married another guy's money" Kerry opining on the ineffectiveness of tax cuts:
I've supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.

If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there's no guarantee that they're going to invest that or invest it in America.

They're free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.
Over at The Weekly Standard, the adorable Mary Katharine Ham observes:
Indeed, people with their own hard-earned money in their own pockets are free to spend, save, invest, or not wherever they please. Kerry betrays the fear that haunts every good liberal— that the American people won't spend their money on exactly what good liberals would spend it on. Good liberals must, therefore, advocate for forcibly relieving the American people of the better part of a trillion dollars of their own money to fund things like STD education, welfare programs, and water parks.
Just so.
