Bush Cutting Taxes

I saw on another Blog someone made the comment that Bush was a fool to "cut taxes" in the time of war. I am not sure how you can say that Bush has cut taxes. In fact the federal revenues for 2006 was about $500 billion more than in 2001. Drudge reports that the Government set a record this month for one day in revenue.

Bush did not cut taxes, he cut the rates. Its fair to argue that the government would have collected more taxes or the economy would have grown less but for the rate cuts. So Bush's policies were better than nothing.

Some guy at the last debate said something to the effect that if you've cut taxes just enough so that revenues go up, you haven't cut them enough.

Yeah, that guy has been pretty lame in his contributions to this board. We should not speak of him.

All he does is complain on how the board his run. Other than that he is pretty much a nobody.

He probably made those anonymous comments himself just so he could complain about something.

You may be right about the anonymous comments. However, I think you would be giving him too much credit as it would require posting.

Man oh man. You go away for a few days for work and the whole blog goes to hell.
