Other than cutting taxes, is there anything Bush and his fans can claim as having done successfully? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for non-stop taxes. But, cutting taxes is only a good thing if it’s done in conjunction with reducing government waste (e.g., a defense budget larger than the rest of the world’s defense budgets combined). These jerks cut taxes and then cut programs for the needy or cut nothing at all, letting the government run up the largest deficits ever, greater than all the deficits accumulated by presidents from 1789 to 2000.
So, it doesn’t surprise me that the Republicans are once again trying to make permanent their deficit-creating, job-market stagnating, economy destroying, only for the richest of the rich, screw everyone else because they don’t contribute large sums of cash and hookers to our GOP campaigns tax cuts:
Congressional Republican leaders on Wednesday anticipated victory in their drawn-out efforts to preserve President Bush’s tax cuts worth $70 billion to investors and to keep 15 million taxpayers from being hit by the alternative minimum tax.
