Democrat sleaze

HEDGE OF MADNESS | By GEOFF EARLE, Post Correspondent | National News | US News | Current National News: "Republican lawmakers charged yesterday that Sen. Charles Schumer is sabotaging a new effort to raise taxes on wealthy hedge-fund managers in an effort to shake down Wall Street for millions of dollars in campaign cash.

The criticism came after Schumer slammed legislation during a Senate Finance Committee hearing that would more than double the tax rates paid by managers of equity funds, hedge funds and other partnerships to make them pay the same rates as ordinary Americans."
