Last week, Nina Totenburg (NPR) urged that we should impose a "Katrina Tax." An alternative solution was proposed: Cancel the $24 million transportation bill instead. Of course, she was against that. She cited instead, an exaggerated claim that rolling back the Bush tax cuts for small business owners would bring $225 billion to the table. She also claimed that only poor people would foot the bill if the rich weren't forced to pay more. (way to hide your bias, Mrs. Marx)

Evan Thomas (Newsweek) justified tax hikes by pointing out Republicans who had done it in the past.

The other liberal they included in this "debate" was Elanor Clift (Mclaughlin Group). She also claimed tax hikes were the only logical step.
