Skyrocketing!

SKYROCKETING!….Over the next ten years, which is a bigger hit to the budget deficit: (a) out-of-control entitlement spending or (b) the Bush tax cuts? Answer here. Be sure to keep this in mind the next time Robert Samuelson or some likeminded “centrist” pundit wails about bipartisan cowardice on entitlement spending but somehow doesn’t find the time to mention unipartisan lunacy on taxes.

And with that, sayonara Max. We’re going to miss you.

UPDATE: Yes, yes, it’s Robert, not Paul. Robert, not Paul. Jeez. You’d think I’d stop making this mistake eventually.
