Kathy Hochul told Rachel Maddow last night that Medicare was not the only issue in the campaign that busted the GOOP in the NY 26th. Seems Hochul’s older, blue collar conservative district believes that everyone should share the pain of economic downturn and the cost of fixing government. That’s right. They believe in taxing the rich. Hochul said a threshold of $500,000 in income resonated with her voters, and she suggested a return to something close to the Clinton Era tax margins is where we need to be. In those days, she pointed out, the economy was prospering.
Is the Democratic Party listening?
