How liberals think

Gotta laugh -- sadly -- at this classic from Governor Moonbeam, aka Jerry Brown of California:

Brown also defended calling his proposal a “millionaires tax” on his initiative campaign website, even though the income threshold would be $250,000.

“Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly if you save it. You just need four years,” Brown said. “It is a millionaires tax. It taxes millionaires, right? And it’s for schools. And it protects public safety.”

To which John J. Pitney right retorts:

Of course, the governor is assuming that people with an annual income of a quarter million do not buy any goods or services (including food, clothing, and shelter) and do not pay any federal, state, or local taxes. Apart from that minor caveat, it’s a perfectly reasonable assertion.

Is Brown really that stupid??
