Does Paris Hilton really need another tax cut?

Unless you're in the top 1% you should be really upset.

It's just unbelievable that the White House, the GOP and some Democrats have the balls to try to put another tax cut for the wealthy on the backs of our grandchildren.

Are we really so stupid and apathetic that we'll let these crooks loot the nation's future again?

Stay tuned. I'll be keeping a close eye on these fine individuals that will stand in line to lick the sweat off a rich man's scrotum.

MUCH TO THE chagrin of the White House and the GOP leadership, lawmakers
didn't get a new round of tax cuts done in time for tax day today. But when
Congress comes back from its recess, it's expected to take up a deal to extend
President Bush's capital gains and dividend tax cuts. To make their
budget-busting tax policy appear less costly than it is, the lawmakers are
resorting to a gimmick that is even more egregious than their usual

This one would, as usual, hide the cost of tax cuts that primarily benefit
upper-income Americans. But it would accomplish that budgetary smoke and mirrors
with a new tax provision, involving retirement savings accounts, that also
benefits the well-to-do. And, to top things off, this new tax provision, while
masking the cost of the tax cuts by bringing in more revenue in the short term,
would in the long run worsen the fiscal situation by piling on more debt. No one
who's serious about controlling the deficit -- whatever one's position on
extending the tax cuts -- could support this dishonest approach.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
