Alan Simpson: "There is a tipping point coming"

BBC News - Alan Simpson: 'There is a tipping point coming' (Video)

This is well worth watching. Simpson is one of my favorite conservatives and he's a straight talker - telling us what we need to hear not what we want to hear.  He's right.  Watch the whole thing.


  1. I really like Simpson as well. But I am disappointed with this attitude that so many people have taken on. It is not his concern if somebody who makes $17 million gives a dime to charity or buys a 2nd plane or yacht. As long as that person earned that money legally, pays their taxes in accordance with our code, what right or concern is it of ANYONE how they spend their money? We can argue top marginal tax rates all day, 35% is too low, 70% is too high, blah blah blah, but in the end people need to be worried about themselves and not about how someone who has been successful legally spends their money.

  2. I agree. However, I thought he was spot on with all his other points.
