YES! Barney Frank said exactly that!
When asked reigning in spending when talking about the proposed second stimulus bill with a 300 BILLION PRICE TAG:
"..at this point there needs to be a focus on a(sic) immediate increase in spending..and I think this is a time when deficit fear has to take a second seat..."
"...yes I believe later on there should be tax increases...I think there are a lot of very rich people out there whom we can tax at a point down the road and recover some of this money"
Yep, you just can't make this stuff up...
