Correct me if I am wrong, my understanding of the federal budget is miniscule at best here.
Isnt the middle class the largest portion of our society? Isnt it then conceivable that the middle class will, as a group, pay the largest share of the tax revenue?
The middle class has always ALWAYS paid the largest share because they have ALWAYS been the largest portion of society. When Bush has cut taxes across the board for ALL groups, then the middle class will STILL pay the largest share of revenues right?
Now, let's get to his spending.
War. Well we have to go to war. We were attacked and summarily must retaliate. Argue semantics about Iraq all you want but he funded terrorists - maybe not al Qaeda - but definately funded terrorists. Bush said (and even Democrats agreed with him) that ANY STATE THAT SPONSORS, FUNDS, OR OTHERWISE AIDS TERRORISTS IS CONSIDERED AN ENEMY OF THE STATE. THis includes Iraq. Not to mention we are STILL kicking ass in Afghanistan.
We had to rebuild New York city. Pay for the damage to property and the loss of life. You think that tab is a small bill? Think again.
We've had to fix the economy that had begun to fail a year before Clinton left office.
There is an old addage: "You cant make money without spending money".
We've had to spend resources going after the white collar criminals who set up shop during Clinton's term.
The ironic thing is, had Clinton managed to get his ********* Monica's mouth for a second and got tough with terrorists and big business crooks, we wouldn't be in this ****ing mess in the first place.
But let's just place it all on Bush like ignorant little children.
