You Tell 'Em, McComrade

Daily Show Flashback: McCain is a "socialist", too!

McCain in 2000:

Audience member: "Why is it that someone like my father who goes to school for 13 years gets penalized in a huge tax bracket because he's a doctor."
McCain: "I think it's to some degree because we feel obviously that wealthy people can afford more."
Audience member: "Are we getting closer and closer to, like, socialism?"
McCain: "Here's what I really believe: That when you reach a certain level of comfort, there's nothing wrong with paying somewhat more."

Stewart: "That, of course, is the late socialist leader John McCain. I believe he passed away during the Republican primaries. He will be missed."
