Lynn Forester de Rothschild Calls for More Taxes and More Public-Private Partnerships

Here's proof that even if you married into billions, you can be pretty delusional.

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, 56, and married to Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild, 80, is out in HuffPo calling for the Tea Party and Occupation Wall Street groups to unite:
Although portrayed as opposites, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street protesters are essentially kissing cousins, both with important contributions to make to America. Neither movement believes that our nation is working for them. They see a society rigged by big government, big labor and big business against the people. They have a point.

Ironically, they would each be more persuasive if they acted together, instead of allowing themselves to be exploited by the squabbling and ineffective political parties. Engagement in a war of attrition dilutes the power of both groups. However, the two movements could claim victory if they force our nation to rethink and rebuild our economy and our civil society based on a shared belief in the best of our democratic values and capitalist roots.
Just what does she think this joint force should demand:
We must find common ground to reform our tax system, eliminate most tax subsidies, recalibrate our regulations, restructure our entitlement programs, re-create a smaller and wiser government and establish private-public partnerships for many essential tasks.
"Reform" of the tax system has been a scam to raise taxes, since at least the Ronald Reagan years.

And no, your eyes are not failing you, she does call for smaller government at the same time calling for the establishment of private-public partnerships for many essential tasks. Private-public partnerships are a key component of big government crony-capitalism. Solyndra is a private-public partnership. The war profiteers, the Carlyle Group with partners and associates like James Baker, George Bush and Arthur Levitt runs many private-public partnerships.

Yes, I can see it now, the Tea Party and Occupation Wall Street in unison chanting for more Rothschild led private-public partnerships.
