Did Gergen just throw out a Jefferson Quote?

I belive Thomas Jefferson had something to say about taxing certain groups along the lines of "To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."-Jefferson. I would have liked to see his face if Jan spoke of that quote.

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James
