One of Elizabeth Warren’s quotes is being promoted by moveon.org as a brilliant insight (Read the quote here). I was intrigued when I saw that it’s apparently a quote “every American needs to see,” and people have described it saying “She just said the best thing. Possibly ever.” But I was surprised when I read it to discover it can hardly even be called an argument. I mean, it is an argument for taxation in general, and for some of the most uncontroversial government functions like roads and the police, but its not some serious talking point for our current taxation debate. It really seems like the left falls in love anytime someone says anything against conservatives on economics, even when it has as little profundity as this.
