bubba's cuts


THE BIG STORY, BY JOE CONASON

George W. Wishes His Tax Cuts Weren't So Bush


When George W. Bush made a rare public appearance in New York on Tuesday, his utterances perhaps revealed more than he intended. "I wish they weren't called the 'Bush tax cuts'," he said of the decade-old rate reduction bearing his name. But does he truly believe, as his words hinted, that Americans would let those cuts expire simply to spite him? Or does he secretly wish the self-serving profligacy and ideological overreach of those cuts had not so starkly defined his presidency?

Whatever his inner motives, Bush's curious remark draws a sharp contrast with his predecessor Bill Clinton -- who proudly recalls the tax increase that was central to his inaugural budget two decades ago. In speeches, Clinton often says that the 1993 tax increase, supported only by Democrats, was the key to balanced growth and reduced deficits.

It isn't clear whether Bush fully understands the painfully obvious effects of his tax and spending policies. Not only should the tax cuts be named after him. So should the deficit and the debt. READ MORE

as you know by know these cuts along with two underfunded wars along with tricky manuevers with the budget gave this country the biggest wealth shift in history with the top 5% more than doubling their wealth while the rest of us went backwards. The tax shift alone with the freeze on raises so proudly presented by the right while prices increases went wild buried the working class! Only historey will tell the truth( unless the corporations write it)of how badly this administration hurt America! WE HAVE NO MONEY TO FIX OUR INFASTRUCTURE THATS THE REAL REASON "MICH MCCONNEL" HAS STOPPED EVERY BILL THAT WOULD CREATE JOBS! HE AND THE IN CROWD DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW HOW THEY HAVE SQUANDERED YOUR FUTURE!
GOT TO THE FISH TANK IF YOU WANT TO HEAR LIES AND SEE HOW THE STUPID ARE LED!
