Media bias hit piece against Democrats
Advertisements [?]
Thousands and thousands of Americans rely on their tax refunds...and, according to the Associated Press, because Democrats haven't passed legislation, they aren't going to get them. No mention of the fact that Bush vetoes everything sent to his desk.
Propaganda at it's finest. :puke:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Silena Davis had counted on an early tax refund to pay for getting her teeth fixed. Now, because Congress has dawdled all year on a tax bill, she and millions of other early filers could have to wait extra weeks for refunds that last year averaged $2,291.

On Nov. 9, House Democrats pushed through a one-year "patch" to shield 21 million taxpayers from about $50 billion in higher taxes due to the AMT. The bill included an additional $30 billion in tax relief measures such as expanding the child tax credit and extending numerous about-to-expire tax breaks for education costs, small business and military personnel.

But, honoring their pledge not to pass legislation that adds to the federal deficit, Democrats voted to increase taxes by $80 billion in other areas, including for investment fund managers. Tax-adverse Republicans voted unanimously against the bill and Bush said he would veto any bill that included a tax increase.
