    It seems that if we apply Bush's standards to his own policies that he proposed or signed "higher taxes" 63 times in his presidency. That's about 20 times a year, compared to 17.5 for Kerry (350/20). Is Bush for higher taxes? Of course not. He is, however, in favor of deceitful advertising.

    Seems to me Kerys only for voting tax increases 12.5% less then GW.

    He's certainly for higher taxes, why do you think tuition & state taxes have gone up sharply? The fed cut funding for the states, forcing them to cut their programs or raise fees & taxes. That's the result of "tax cuts" -- higher state taxes.
