出来混迟早要还的

美国的财政赤字预计09年将达到GDP的13%(根据Consensus Forecasts)。刨除两次世界大战,目前的赤字将是创记录的,而且远远高于平时小于5%的水平。美国财长Geithner和经济顾问Summer昨天都表示不排除增税的可能性来解决政府赤字。很多人猜测中产阶级也不例外(家庭年收入小于25万,根据巴马大哥的定义)。巴马总统在竞选时承诺决不对中产阶级增税:
 

“You will not see your taxes increased by a single dime,” Obama said during the campaign. “Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, no taxes.”

面对大家得猜测,白宫发言人Robert Gibbs 昨天出来澄清,声明巴马不对中产阶级征税的承诺不变:"I am reiterating the president’s commitment in the clearest terms possible that he is not raising taxes on those that make less than $250,000 dollars a year。"

在政客和经济学家之间,我选择相信经济学家的话。街头的混混都知道“出来混迟早要还的”道理。我想自己的智商应该比混混还是稍微高一点儿的。
