After Witless Willie was elected and threw his party under the bus in his 1993 tax hike even for people that had been dead since January 1st. The DeMafia lost a bunch of old time Southern Democrats. The real irony was when Witless began bragging about the 'Surplus' in the government coffers. It never occurred to him that the surplus was because the taxes were too high in the first place. You don't raise taxes. You cut spending on stupid programs.
