THIS CONGRESS MUST GO
After yesterday, I started to think about the three tax packages our Congress made. Now the $7.1 billion package for Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama is a tax exempt bond for their own rebuilding. This I think is good for the people in those three states.
What got under my skin was the fact that the Bush Administration opposed this tax cut because it exempted Country Clubs, Liquor Stores and Casinos. Can you believe that?
Now the $153 million tax package allows our Military to use their combat pay to claim the earned income credit.
The $31.2 billion tax package, which affects the middle class lately, is suppose to prevent the rich from dodging taxation, known as alternative minimum tax.
Today It broke my heart to hear that our Congress passed the $56 billion tax package on dividends and capital gains, which will cost the Treasury $20.6 billion through 2010.
I still can't understand how this type tax cut will help the economy or deficit. If someone could explain this to me, please do so.
NOT DEAN, BUT BUSH WAS THE FIRST TO SAY, WE COULD NOT WIN THE WAR IN IRAG!
According to DNC Fact Check, President Bush was the first person to say that we could not win the war in Iraq on NBC, The Today Show on August 30, 2004. So before you conservatives start with your talking points on Howard Dean, I suggest you check out DNC FACT CHECK.
