Sock Broadway with a tax increase? Noooo, cries the New York Times. (Seriously.) Why? Because tax increases make life harder for consumers and make them turn away from the thing that is being heavily taxed. This, as John Podhoretz points out in one of his typically witty and pithy postings, is the fundamental reason to oppose not just a Broadway tax increase but any tax increase. So if the Times is against this one, it should rethink its love affair with tax hikes in general.
