Gordon Brown, the recently re-elected British Prime Minister, is urging the world's wealthiest nations to immediately cut taxes. Sure, Brown's a Labour guy, a liberal. But Brown has some good common sense and an awareness of reality. Let's hope his message is not shunned by the tax-and-spend Democrats (and Republicans) in the United States. From the Guardian tonight: Gordon Brown tonight called on the world's most powerful industrial nations to agree a programme of immediate and coordinated tax cuts to prevent the global economy sliding deeper into recession. (Too bad Brown didn't make this speech to the idiots in Michigan, a gang of Democrats who have spent decades destroying the state's economy with higher and higher taxes. Too bad Todd "The Stoopid" Stroger, Cook County's president, will not be able to comprehend Brown's message of common sense.) The Guardian's report continues: Arriving in New York for this weekend's unprecedented gathering of the leaders of the world's leading 20 economies, the prime minister said the need for a "fiscal stimulus" both for the UK economy and the world had increased after an autumn in which accelerating job losses had intensified fears of a deep and lasting slump.
