Companies Love Misery

The house organ of rich whiners, Forbes, has published its latest Tax Misery Index. Take a look:
The Bush tax cuts, Forbes exults, are dramatically alleviating tax misery in the United States, as can be seen by our dramatic improvement in the rankings over three years. Why, in just three years we've put at least a dozen countries between us and those tax hellholes, France, Belgium, Norway and the other Saddamite nations. And if Congress just has the spine to accelerate the tax cuts scheduled for 2006, it will just be us and a bunch of Third World Nations, as we race down to the wire of a taxless society. Go Seabiscuit!

Addendum: The 3-year data are here.
