Second Highest Tax Revenue in HISTORY

This brief article says is all:

A flood of income tax payments pushed up government receipts to the second-highest level in history in April, giving the country a sizable surplus for the month.

What? Did we read that right? Are tax revenues UP? But I thought that all of these "tax cuts for the rich" were hurting us and adding to our deficit? I thought that with everything we're spending on the war and with our growing deficit we absolutely needed to raise taxes for everyone, especially those evil "rich" (like the two married teachers whose combined income qualifies them for the alternative minimum tax)?

But John Kerry, say it ain't so! Feinstein? Swimmer? oh, no, he's got bigger issues right now... How about Biden? Pelosi? Oh, I'm sure Chucky Schumer will set me straight again...

On a more serious note, they will of course set us straight. They'll do what they've been doing for the last 50 years. They'll ignore the facts and do everything they can to propegate class warfare to get themselves reelected.

Luckily, there are many of us who know better.
