Well, since the Bush Tax Cuts ONLY went to the rich, I guess ONLY the rich will take a beating when they expire...or that’s the opinion of at least 90% of the public.
But this article says something COMPLETELY different - it talks about these tax cuts reaching the middle and lower classes. That can’t be, we’ve NEVER been told that Bush cut taxes to these people.
...my point explains the COMPLETE lack of educating the public that the Republicans (including Romney) have done. It’s bad enough cutting taxes to the lower classes (as it doesn’t bring in any new money or investments, just more lottery tickets)...but if you are still going to do something that useless, at least let the country know.
It’s truly amazing. The Bush tax cuts were an across the board reduction in tax rates for everyone who paid income tax. The change in take home pay was right there in front of the noses of every taxpayer, whether “rich”, middle class, or otherwise.
Yet, liberals have somehow managed the incredible feat of convincing these people, to the contrary of all evidence right before them, that they didn’t get any tax cut at all (because it only went to the evil “rich”). And the primary way that they accomplished this deception was by constantly referring to raw dollars rather than percentages.
We all heard it constantly, “The top 1% received far more than did those with lower incomes.” Of course, they failed to mention that the “top 1%” also paid far more in taxes and were merely receiving the same percentage back as everyone else, though quoting raw dollar totals made it sound more dramatic.
Unfortunately, a large number of our fellow citizens have proven themselves to be pathetically stupid and thus prone to being deceived by even such transparent lies as this. Add in the media as co-conspirators to hammer the lies into their empty little heads and the future looks awfully bleak.
