Bill Clinton: Bush Tax Cuts 'Immoral', 'Unethical'

Ex-president Bill Clinton is blasting President Bush's economic policies as "immoral" and "unethical," saying he blames administration tax cuts for increasing hostility towards the U.S. around the world.

"I hear all this talk about family values and all this stuff," Clinton told an audience at the University of Minnesota on Saturday, before explaining how an old friend had been hurt by cuts in subsidies for Americans in need while the wealthy got tax cuts.

"I resent it," Clinton said, his voice rising in anger. "I think it's immoral, I think it's unethical."

"Nobody ever explains what the meaning of those tax cuts are," he told the crowd. "So we're going to give them their tax cuts first and then go ask the Chinese to loan us money to help save the lives of the young men and women we send into combat."

The Minnesota crowd applauded as the ex-president continued to paint the White House as fiscally irresponsible in a way that shortchanges other countries.

Bill and Hillary just pocketed $20M for their companion lying "biographies." They will pay approximately 1 percent in taxes.

Let me get this straight:

Tax cuts for Americans increase hostility toward us around the world? Taking less money out of people's pockets is immoral??

What, did they give this guy a lobotomy when he had his bypass?? What a whackjob...

Suuuuuurrre!!

It's unethical to give people back their money for them to invest it wherever they choose?

Those pesky Republicans...don't have any money to support a socialist type government of giveaways all the time, that's why Bill C. is annoyed. Ha!

....while the wealthy got tax cuts

Actually, the middle class got the greatest income tax reduction percentage-wise, but the Left repeats the "tax cuts only for the rich" lie so often that they now believe it..

Well thanks to Bush's "unethical and immoral" tac cuts, the government, through the CBO, reported an extra $100+ billion dollars they weren't expecting and can't account for where it came from. So, is that $100+ BILLION extra in government revenu unethical or immoral? Should it be given back? I haven't heard of any libs who complain about the tax cuts they got having had written a check and given it back to the IRS. They complain about them, but have any liberals ever given their tax cuts back to the government? 8)

Let's review this,Billy.Fact:you're amazingly wealthy, worth many millions.Fact:You live in one of the whitest,wealthiest towns in the world.Fact:If you're friend was truly in need,you could have kicked in many thousands of dollars and still be fantastically wealthy.

So my question to you is...is friendship always a one way deal for you;your "friends" give,and you take?

Bill Clinton: Bush Tax Cuts 'Immoral', 'Unethical'

Stealing 50% of an honest, hard working Americans paycheck to buy votes from the lazy, do nothing democrat base is immoral.
The tax payers cannot go on making their bricks without straw anymore. They have families to feed.
It's time to end the democrat dinosaur party once and for all. Now THAT would be the moral thing to do.

"BJ Clinton certainly knows 'immoral' and 'unethical'."

Wasn't that the title of his recent book, "My Life, Immoral and Unethical". No?...Well, it should have been. That alone would have moved it from the fiction side to the nonfiction section.

At any rate...words fail me to describe this steaming lump of turd.

No, we're asking the Chinese to loan us money to pay for all those votes the Democrats (and, increasingly, the Republicans) have bought with bloated social spending programs.
