John Kerry promises to raise taxes From the Associated Press: John Kerry says he'll campaign to repeal President Bush's tax cuts, raise the minimum wage and make health care more available. <snip rest of story regarding Super Tuesday results> That's wonderful. Just as we're out of recession, he pledges to raise costs for small businesses, then promises to take more money from them while he's at it. I seem to remember this strategy working very poorly for Walter Mondale back in 1984. Bush will win in a landslide.
