"Ignorant Francophobia Bandwagon"

Matt Yglesias calls out the "ignorant Franophobia bandwagon" and nominates Judd Gregg, who happily opted out of a chance to serve in the Obama administration (what was Barack thinking?), for permanent membership.

LOL! I wondered what Judd Gregg was thinking!

Is Yglesias correct about the level of taxation in France? Is it really that high? I truly have no clue as to how people can afford to live in Paris. Sorry for posting such an ignorant question, I will do some research on my own, but after spending a sabbatical year in France I am just amazed that anyone can afford to live there. Perhaps that was last year's euro/dollar exchange rate which was depressing my lifestyle, but I could barely afford to eat at home, much less buy a coffee or eat out or go to the cinema.

And I thought I was going to be living the highlife by sharing someone's apartment! No such luck.
