Subject: Bush is better on Taxes?


Is any of this true? 
My BS meter says it is make beleive.
 Dave in L.A.

    Taxes under Clinton 1999                   Taxes under Bush 2008
    Single making 30K - tax $8,400            Single making 30K - tax $4,500
    Single making 50K - tax $14,000          Single making 50K - tax $12,500
    Single making 75K - tax $23,250          Single making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 60K - tax $16,800       Married making 60K- tax $9,000
    Married making 75K - tax $21,000       Married making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 125K - tax $38,750     Married making 125K - tax $31,250  

First, never trust what you see on the Internet unless you trust the source.
Republicans spend half their life making shit up about how Hillary dissed the 
Gold Star Mothers and Jane Fonda had six soldiers killed in North Vietnam.
Never trust a Republican - even when he seems to have proof - they lie.

OK, now - who is

I'll guess it's an organization backed by billionaire Republicans because the 
super-rich are pretty damn tired of paying their fair share of taxes on their billions.

Second, I refuse to believe for a second that Bush ever did anything 
to help "the little people," and that includes taxes.

But - for the sake of argument - let's assume every word is true:
Bush borrowed that tax-cut money and that money has to be paid back 
to the Commie Chinese and the backers of the 9-11 Saudi hijackers.
Bush is taking money out of OUR pockets to finance a loan for his communist 
and terrorist friends.  They make a profit when they loan us money.
Bush is trading with the enemy for profit - just like Prescott Bush did.

Also, let's say there was a law that you had to see a theater movie every week
and, by law, you had to buy a large tub of popcorn and a large Coca Cola.

IF Bush charges $20 for $5 popcorn and $20 for $5 Cokes,
can be brag about cutting the price of movie admission by 50 cents?

You bet he will - and the whore press will say we got a great deal!

In other words, IF your federal taxes go down by $3K, but your state
and local taxes rise $4K plus you spend an exctra $2K a year on gas
and you couldn't finance that new home because you had to compete
with the government to borrow the money - are you any better off?
