 While Speaker of the House in Madison's second term, Patrick Henry pushed through legislation that DOUBLED the level of tariffs under Jefferson. The result was so disastrous that even Henry Clay, who wanted protectionist tariffs, had to argue for the repeal of the punitive rates of the Henry tariffs.)

Our current President and his fervent supporters seem far less worried about the amount of actual revenue to the government than they are about satisfying their tastes for envy and rhetorical retribution.

Let them eat fairness, indeed.
