On the Enthusiasm in Some Quarters for Higher Taxes

I think that the economist, E.R.A. Seligman (in a rare moment of candor/intellectual honesty) probably said it best (circa, 1880-something) when he admitted that "it is undoubtedly a fact that the enthusiasm for the (income) tax comes chiefly from those who were thus assured freedom from its burdens."......Boy, does that ever ring familiar, huh?
