In which I agree with Glenn Reynolds.

This is actually a good idea.
SO OBAMA’S PEOPLE ARE TALKING TAX INCREASES AGAIN. Here’s my proposal: A 50% surtax on anything earned within five years after leaving the federal government, above whatever the federal salary was. Leave a $150K job at the White House, take a $1M job with Goldman, Sachs, pay a $425K surtax.
That would be great! Let's make it retroactive, too.

Dick Cheney and Haley Barbour would be paying a hell of a lot in back taxes, don't you think? I'm thinking Cheney leads the league in money earned after leaving the federal government. Never seemed to bother Putzy before. Still, I'm down.

But because it's Putz, though, he also added this buffoonery.
Some House Republican should add this to a bill and watch the Dems react.
1) A Republican proposing a tax increase? HAHAHAHA!
3) A Republican proposing a tax increase on rich people? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
2) A Republican taxing away their future as an oil lobbyist? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! times infinity!
