Other than being "War President" (which I think would translate into "war lord" were it a monarchy but in any case) GWB takes all kinds of credit for not only preserving the Clinton tax cuts, but slashing capital gains & other unearned income. People who are so rich that they live off the interest & dividends of large investments are thrilled, and the middle class generally got a break of a few hundred bucks last year, however: The average American only gets approximately $300 or $600 (depending on marital status) back from Bush's tax cuts. The other side of that coin, however, is that every American's share of the national debt was increased by something like $4,400 per person. So, essentially what happened was Bush took out a personal loan in your name for $4,400, handed you $300 of it, and pocketed the rest. And some people are actually HAPPY about these tax cuts! In May, Congress passed a $320 billion tax measure that gave the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans an average of almost $100,000 in tax reductions over the next four years. Half of the tax cut's dividends are put into the hands of our nation's wealthiest 5%. 1 percent (78 million taxpayers) will receive a tax cut of almost $100,000. 60 percent (78 million taxpayers) will receive a tax cut averaging $600. 20 percent will receive a tax cut averaging $66.00. To make up the shortfall, property taxes had to be raised. State taxes had to be raised. (But the wealthiest 1% get their tax cuts) College tuition had to be raised. (But the wealthiest 1% get their tax cuts) Overtime for our soldiers fighting the war in Iraq has been cut! The veterans administration cut health care to the veterans. V.A. Hospitals are closing. (But the wealthiest 1% get their tax cuts) The President proposes a $250.00 per year sign up fee for veterans. (sneaky). Bush proposed that overtime pay be cut from firemen, police, nurses etc. The National Firefighters are endorsing John Kerry. Schools around the country were forced to end their school year early. Students were unclear if they had enough school credits to enter college. So what's the deal here? Why fall for this obvious fraud? Any answers?
