Vocab Lesson For The Day

Do you have one of those dictionary services that send you a “Word of the Day”? If not, here’s your “Words of the Day” courtesy of the Americans for Tax Reform blog.

myopic: raising taxes on a declining revenue source to pay for wealthier children’s health care

louche: politicians that run on a Pledge to work against tax increases, then turn around and vote their constituents higher taxes — see also: recreant

pyrrhic victory: “successfully” pushing through massive spending increases at the cost of economy-dampening taxes and innovation-stifling regulations

oniomania: the virtue exhibited in the Democrat budget

verbigeration: what Democrats prefer to do rather than allow up or down votes on judges and Jim Nussle for OMB director

Unless Congress learns some new words quickly, taxpayers would be better off if they decided to estivate.
