Color me surprised. / not
With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?
But you evidently aren't really interested in revenue, but in control, just like your Democrat brethren.
It’s too simple for da Booshes.
Cut taxes = revenue up. A rising tide lifts all boats.
Who’s Jeb Bush, anyway?
Everyone knows the “spending cuts” would be fake. Starting 10 years in the future, based on reductions to scheduled increases, etc.
A has-been before he ever was.
The entire Bush family can’t be trusted. Bush Senior, George Bush and now Jeb Bush.
Jeb Bush’s time is over - he could win a Senate seat, I’m sure, but I don’t see him making any such move.
Shame - I voted for him twice & he was a fairly good governor, infinitely better than the liberal trash here that rises to the top of the pond scum from time to time...
Jeb, irrelevant and stupid is no way to go through life.
Hey Jeb ... go tell your mommy that we won’t play with you.
Jeb’s wife - isn’t she the one who tried to smuggle tens of thousands of dollars of designer clothes into the country? Yes, a real sterling character.
The name sounds familiar - isn’t he the guy the media tells me I’m excited about as future presidential material?
I heard what he said on the TV, probably edited for CNN’s liking as they were trying to make it sound like he was clearly against Mitt. He made it clear that he cut taxes in Fla but would not sign Norquist’s pledge. Norquist was just looking for tv time. Not really worth anyone getting worked up. He ain’t getting selected for anything.
no more bushes
Is he also for baseline budgeting? The budgeting would not have any real spending cuts.. a sham to fool people.
Why does Jeb Bush get so much air-time?
Revenue increases? You mean raising taxes!
Governor stop the lies!
Why do we need to increase taxes by 1 if we are going to reduce spending by 10? BECAUSE YOU KNOW THIS IS A LIE!
Stop the lies sir.
Washington does not need ANY more revenue, they need 100 times LESS.
Say what?? What happened to Jeb?
Please, no more Bushes, at least for another generation or two.
