Quote of the day

From the Breck Girl, John Edwards:
Democratic U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards on Sunday said that he would raise taxes, chiefly on the wealthy, to pay for expanded healthcare coverage under a plan costing $90 billion to $120 billion a year to be unveiled on Monday.

"We'll have to raise taxes. The only way you can pay for a healthcare plan that cost anywhere from $90 to $120 billion is there has to be a revenue source," Edwards said on NBC's Meet the Press news program.
Thanks, John. That whole "I promise to raise taxes" worked so well for Walter "One State" Mondale that you decided to give it a whirl. Good for you, son.
