For those of you who Say Bush cuts taxes?

Why then is he proposing to punish me in the State of the Union tonight. I am going to be punished in that I am going to have higher taxes because I get my insurance from my employer. Is that really fair? So much for considerations of the middle class.

    George Bush DOES cut taxes, but only for people who are well beyond your tax bracket or mine (billionaires, realy).

    It's his way of stimulating the economy.

    Huzzah!

    I hate Paul Begala, but he wrote an interesting book about the subject - "It's Still The Economy Stupid".

    Check it out. You'll laugh so hard, you'll cry.
