What has George Will been Smoking ?

He asks if Charles Rangel is a "Closet Reaganite?" when discussing the tax reform proposal, which I consider to be the great counter-offensive in the until now one sided US class war.

One of us is totally out to lunch. I would note that I discuss the tax increases proposed by Rangel to balance the reform of the AMT. Will does not.

I have no idea why he wants to present a huge increase in the progressivity of the tax code as Reganite. I know doesn't like to admit that Reagan cut rich people's taxes and raised non-rich people's taxes (that is FICA). Still the boldness of his absurd claim is bracing.
