New York Post | Harry Reid’s tax grab

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid must be looking at the results of a different election than the one America held Tuesday.

Because on Wednesday he insisted that President Obama’s narrow victory proves Americans favor tax hikes, particularly on the “wealthy,” as part of any plan to address massive US deficits.

Taxes on “the wealthy” are the first refuge of Democratic scoundrels these days: Gov. Cuomo carved a big hunk out of that pie a year ago; Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is clamoring for a slice of his own — as is virtually the entire New York City political establishment.
