Sounds like a typo to me.

The Wall Street Journal has a headline today that reads "Bush Vows to Halve Deficit." It probably ought to read "Bush Vows to Have Deficit." Someone typing up the copy for the headlines probably slipped up typing, I guess. We all make mistakes.

After 2008 (if we're still alive then), if a Republican ever uses the phrase "tax and spend" to describe a Democrat, we'll all just remind them of "The Bush Administration".

Yep. If we can remind people that the infrastructure that we've got—that very infrastructure that makes it so possible for rich people to become and to stay rich—is paid for by taxes, I think there'd be less grousing about paying taxes. If we could remind enough people that taxes help to fund the programs that keep so many of us (but fewer and fewer) from sinking entirely, the attitude toward taxes would brighten considerably.

The Republicans' deficit-and-spend mentality is working hard to collapse our society and many of its institutions. The problem is that I don't think enough people will get upset until our economy's been ruined beyond repair. If the Republicans and the supply-siders stay in power for much longer, well... we're in for a bumpy ride...
