Homeopathic Economics

WSJ has a post up about Senator Fauxcahontas’s proposal to raise Social Security benefits. You see, since seniors are having a rough time these days, we should raise the FICA tax to pay for increased benefit—in spite of the depressive effect that the tax increase would on the economy which would make times even tougher for everyone.

(H/T, Instapundit, who asks “What could go wrong?” Perhaps a better question, given the government’s recent meddling in the economy, would be “What could go right?”)
