When they advocate higher taxes and regulations on job creators, Democrats pretend that incentives are irrelevant. In real life, Democrats know better:
* Former Senator John Kerry, rumored to be a possible cabinet pick in Obama's second term, happily hid his 76-foot yacht from Massachusetts taxes until his subterfuge was publicly exposed.
* Warren Buffett is a prominent Obama supporter who calls for higher taxes on the rich. Yet, he has arranged for most of his estate to escape taxation while calling for increasing the estate tax.
Apparently, the cognitive dissonance (that subtle creepy feeling we're not quite done tweaking our belief system) seemingly causes them no pain.h/t City Square
