Bush Gets Some Tax Cuts
Well, the tax cut was passed, with so much amending and addendums that I'm sure Bush will claim it was Democratic meddling that ruined his voodoo spell to revive the economy. The number is $350 billion, but taken out to the 10-year level, the cost looks more like $660 billion. That's on top of our existing deficit, and before we've had the parade of military spending increases. Even mega-tycoon Warren Buffet thinks this is a bad idea.
