Tax and die.
Of all the meaningless, stupid political catchphrases out there, is there a dumber one than "tax-and-spender"? What politician doesn't tax and spend?!? My head asplode.
"By calling for tax increases for the wealthy, Edwards risks opening himself to criticism that he's a tax-and-spender in the mold of Walter Mondale, the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee who said he would raise taxes."
