    (43)'s Tax Cuts were for Everyone... Fact.

    As a Matter of Fact, as the AP Documented, the DemocRATS are Proposing to Extend the Bush Tax Cuts for those making $250,000 or less a Year...

    The AP Refers to this, in a round about way, as 75% of the Total Tax Cuts that (43) put through... It "Costing" $3 Trillion...

    The REPUBLICans Propose leaving them all in place, "Costing" $4 Trillion...

    So why do Liberals Continue to Lie as they Suggest that 75% of the Bush Tax Cust Remain?...

    Anyone on the Left want to Answer this?

    :)

    peace...

    That is indeed 1 thing that the left wingers on here ignore, that the tax cuts were not 'just for the rich'... they were indeed for the vast majority of the income tax paying citizenry... and they will also play with the numbers to suit their agenda

    How are those paying ZERO in income taxes entitled to pay none? Why?? Because of the leftist agenda of selective equal treatment by government

    No one said they were "only" for the rich. They are saying that only ones who actually BENEFITTED were the rich, and the rest got nothing in return. Nada, zip, zilch. No jobs. No booming economy. Those cuts were SO worth it...

    The upper 2% are not apt to spend on consumer products, but would continue to use their tax windfalls to invest or sock it away in offshore accounts. What has the upper 2% been doing with their tax cuts so far to keep the economy moving? Nothing measureable, for sure.

    Wowza. How much of Bush's tax cut went to the top 5%? How much went to the bottom 95%? You're really trying to make an argument that giving 90% to the top 5%, financed on debt, is a strong position? I think not.
