Kill the Estate Tax, Bush and McCain say take from the poor, give to the rich
Bush and some Senators like McCain want to eliminate the estate tax, the effect of which would give big tax breaks to the nations wealthiest like the Wal-Mart family (they really need the relief right).
Give to the rich, eliminate the estate tax.
Now the screw the poor part. In the deficit reduction act of 2005 what got hit? Medicare, Medicade and education. Lawmakers and Bush said this was necessary to help reduce the deficit, The Brass Monkey says BS. Number one Bush and the republican lead Congress are the ones that caused the huge deficit by spending money we did not have. Number two you do not cut incoming revenue (the estate tax in this instance) when you are already in debt.
This stuff is just one more example of how the Bush administration and our congress pander to the rich and screw the average American. Other examples are to numerous to mention but a few are, tax breaks for big business to send jobs overseas, letting tons of illegal aliens into the country so what jobs are left here can be filled by cheap labor and not enforcing immigration laws so this can happen. (Wal-Mart is a big supporter of illegal immigration.)
Now call us dumb but do the filthy rich need tax breaks like this? Call us dumb again, Bush and his gang of cronies cut funding for programs designed to help the poor at the same time they encouraging poor uneducated illegals to enter the country. It boggles the mind.
What would Robin Hood think?
The Brass Monkey throws arms up in the air and says do not forget to vote in November.
