“Time to increase taxes.”
I did a double-take when I saw that headline on Wayne Winsley’s blog. Winsley, who describes himself as “Connecticut’s Conservative Capitalist,” ran as a Republican against U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro in the 3rd District. And raising taxes isn’t an idea most Republicans embrace.
Turns out Winsley isn’t talking about increasing the tax rate but rather increasing the pool of people paying taxes by adding jobs. “It is time to increase the amount of taxes being paid by increasing the number of people that are paying taxes,” he writes.
