SOUNDS MARXIST TO ME
A NEW BREED OF TAX TYRANT
JUSTICE Antonin Scalia cut to the heart of the case: "So you can always take from A and give to B if B pays more taxes?"
Amazingly enough, the answer he got was yes "if there are significantly more taxes." So Wesley Horton, an attorney for New London, Conn., told the Supreme Court last week.
If a majority of the court buys Horton's logic, the Supremes will create a beast of municipal taxation that could swallow whole neighborhoods across the nation.
