George W. Bush can accurately be called the "reverse Robinhood president": The one who steals from the poor to give to the rich. The main federal taxes are 1 estate tax (paid only by rich people- worth over 3 million dollars) 2 income tax (rich pay a higher percentage) 3 payroll tax (poor people pay a higher percentage) How did Bush change our tax policies? Well, to help the rich and let more of the tax burden fall on the backs of the poor and middle class. The tax that only rich people pay, he wants to eliminate. The tax that the rich pay a higher %, he cuts significantly; mainly for the rich. The tax that poor pay a higher %, he doesn't touch. What's worse is, the payroll tax is supposed to be used only to pay for social security. But Bush raided the social security surplus to pay some of the other bills that were formerly paid for by the taxes on rich people. If you believe in having a privileged class of people who are born into wealthy families (and don't even have to work for their money) and that they should pay less than the working poor and middle class who work their asses off, then Bush is your president, the "reverse Robinhood" president. I'd rather reward hard work and help the average American than sustain an aristocracy of the wealthy at the expense of our workers.
