    (Reuters) - France's Constitutional Council on Saturday rejected a 75 percent upper income tax rate to be introduced in 2013 in a setback to Socialist President Francois Hollande's push to make the rich contribute more to cutting the public deficit.

    I'm surprised this constitutional council did not say “It Is Not Our Job to Protect the People From the Consequences of Their Political Choices”

    I have no doubt that someday the Germans will march there once more to drive away the Muslims that will soon take over France and threaten the rest of Europe.
