EXTRA! EXTRA! BUSH FLIP FLOPS ON TAXES! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
so yeah, bush makes a big deal about the fact that he cut taxes (like that 400 bucks really made an impact on my lifestyle) and says that tax cuts are what we need to make the economy stronger. then he decides that it would be a good idea to institute a national sales tax. what a brilliant idea. cut one tax and ADD A NEW ONE!! did he think his conservative cohorts would let that slip by undetected? yeah very un-republican of him, i think. not to mention that sales tax would be counterproductive because it would stop people from making large purchases because the tax might make big ticket items harder to afford. so then he finds that this decision is unpopular, so he backs off. Mr. Bush, can I offer you some butter and syrup to go with your waffle?
