Yep, we can see the Republican strategy once more stated.
Lower taxes on corporations. Keep capital gains tax low. Maintain the lowered tax on the rich. Keep financing the war industry (this war is winding down – let's start a new one). Sprinkle in a little frosting by saying we want lower taxes for the middle income and we will “phase” out the alternative minimum tax (which took too much tax from the rich anyway). Top it all off with a promise to revise the tax system to a “fairer and simpler” system.
Promises are good!
Remember George saying we can give back the taxes to the rich and still balance the budget?
It still looks like a duck and quacks like a duck - a very rich duck that wants to keep everything it has and make the other ducks pay. Maybe it thinks it's a goose with a golden egg.
Meanwhile, we are borrowing the future from our children and grandchildren in order to finance misbegotten plans and helping the rich keep their money while accumulating more. The welfare of the common man has been forgotten by most and misplaced by others. Now it's “every man for himself” and “grab what you can while you can”. We end up with the rich getting richer and the rest slipping into financial slavery.
Of course, McBush said he wasn't very good on economics. So he's just passing along the word from his handlers.
We definitely need change and fresh ideas and some care for the “common man”.
