"The rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than that proportion... To remedy inequality of riches as much as possible, by relieving the poor and burdening the rich."
That's from Adam Smith, the classical economist who's considered the father of Capitalism.
Imagine hearing your local Democratic congress member or senator saying something like that. They never say anything remotely like it. Modern Democrats, including the entire New Mexico delegation, are fiscal conservatives. Republicans who are liberal on two social issues, abortion and gay rights.
