Michael Kinsley: “The big problem with ‘change’ as a political slogan is that most people don’t really want change… The change we want is a suspension of the laws of mathematics. We debate tax increases for the rich to finance middle-class entitlement programs, versus tax cuts for the rich and ‘reform’ of entitlement programs. In the end, we will have to raise taxes on everybody and cut entitlements as well. And that, unfortunately, is change you really can believe in.”
