Yes, President Bush has turned the US into the worst debtor nation in the \nhistory of the world. He has drive the economy right into the ditch. And why you \nask would our fearless president do this? He did it so he could give 30% of his \ntax cuts to millionaires making 1.2 million per year, or 6 per hour in terms \nnormal people can understand. Of the current 2+ billion dollar deficit, 0 \nbillion is specifically because of Bush tax cuts. 30%, or Billion of this \nwent to millionaires. So we are in essence borrowing money -\- that our \ngrandchildren will have to pay back -\- to finance tax kickbacks to millionaires!\n\nSo while high energy and health care costs are killing lower and middle class \nAmericans, Bush chose to borrow billion dollars to give to millionaires \nmaking 6 per hour. Can you imagine making that kind of money? You could work \nfour hours and you have your house mortgage and car payment taken care of!! I'm \nreally glad Bush chose to borrow our money to help these people. These \nmillionaires were hurting big time!\n\nWhen GW Bush was elected 3 1/2 years ago, the projected 10 year "surplus" was \npredicted to be 4 or 5 trillion dollars (That's right, SURPLUS.) The prediction \nright now is for a "deficit" of over 2 trillion dollars 10 years from now. Here \nis the scary part. If Bush's tax cuts, which predominantly go to the super rich, \nare made permanent, the projected 10 year deficit is almost 5 trillion dollars.\n\nSo this is a potential 10 trillion dollar negative swing with Bush in office! \nThis idiot has driven the country right into a ditch, and in the process he is \nsiphoning money from the middle and lower class to the ultra rich. If this \ncontinues, the only way the country will be able to keep it's head above water \nis to cuts all the safety nets of the middle and lower class, which is social \nsecurity and Medicare.\n\n30% of the Bush tax cuts went to the upper 1%. This is actually better than it \ncould have been. If all of Bush's tax cuts had been enacted as he wanted, fully \n45% of his tax cuts would have gone to the super wealthy.\n\nWe are going into deep debt, borrowing money to finance tax cuts for \nmillionaires. And these millionaires are rewarding us by sending money to tax \nfree accounts in the Cayman Islands and shipping decent paying manufacturing \njobs to China and decent paying IT jobs to India.\n\nBush and Cheney are practicing bait and switch on a massive scale\n\n[URL]http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/editorials/la-ed-deficit14sep14,1,4399255.story?coll=la-news-comment-editorials[/URL]"...anew \nreport from the Congressional Budget Office projects a 2-billiondeficitthis \nyear and .3 trillion over the next decade, even if the currenttax \ncuts,technically set to expire over the next few years, are not extended.If they \nare,it projects a tab of .5 trillion.
