Conservative Bill Kristol on Fox News: It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on Millionaires

“”Four presidents in the last century have won 50 percent of the vote twice: Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, and Obama,” the influential neocon said. “It pains me to say that, to put him in with those other three, but it’s a fact. Democrats picked up seats in the House and the Senate. The president is in good shape.”

Recognizing the self-evident — that “elections have consequences” — Kristol went on to suggest that perhaps it was time for the Republican Party and the conservative movement writ large to “pull back, let people float new ideas.”

Like, say, raising taxes on the rich: “Let’s have a serious debate. Don’t scream and yell when one person says, ‘You know what? It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.’ It really won’t, I don’t think.”
