Overheard at Table 2: New York Millionaire's Tax Break

- I think it was a win.

- For who?

- For everybody.

- How's it for everybody? The rich get a reduction!

- They would have had to pay nothing. This way, the state will bring in $1.9 billion in revenue.

- But they WERE bringing in $4 billion.

- But when that tax expired next month, they'd be bringin' in nuthin' - somethin' is better than nuthin' right?

- See, that's why we're all so messed up. It's like a bully who comes out and pokes a sharp stick in your eye, and then expects you to be thankful that he didn't poke it in both!

- I dunno. The way I see it, the rich still get taxed somethin'

- And I say it's not enough.

- Well, how much do you wanna tax the rich the, anyway?

- Tax 'em so much 'till they don't have enough left to hurt nobody else, anymore.
