    McCain on the Bush Jr and Reagan tax cuts


    But McCain's conflicts with fellow Republicans over taxes date back well before his differences with Bush. In December 1994, after his party swept to control of Congress on tax-cut promises, he challenged Ronald Reagan's legacy when he warned, "I think we would be making a terrible mistake to go back to the '80s, where we cut all of those taxes and all of a sudden now we've got a debt that we've got to pay on an annual basis that is bigger than the amount that we spend on defense."



    In 2001, just days before Bush's first tax cut passed, McCain lamented on ABC's "This Week" that, "I'd like to see much more of this tax cut shared by working Americans. . . . I think it still devotes too much of it to the wealthiest Americans."

    Yea but McCain says a lot of things. He's just way too wishy-washy to be taken seriously. Tax Cuts are always ok. It's the insane spending that has to be reigned in. The more they steal from the Tax Payers,the more they want to spend. McCain just doesn't get it sometimes. It's not the Tax Cuts. It's the spending.

    I believe nothing that comes from the McCain's mouth- he changes his fucking tune more often than Songbird on shuffle with intro play turned on.
