Bush wants to eliminate taxes on dividends. These are tax giveaways that do not provide any stimulus to the country. Also, the money saved by corporations on their income taxes is either reinvested in the company or attributed to stockholder's equity --- either way the elite win.
Bush wants to eliminate the estate tax. This is a tax that is applied to the top 2% of the American population, another giveaway that provides no stimulus.
Lastly, what's all this bitching about tax breaks for the rich? They earned it, what means that they're any less entitled to what they earned than you are? Would you like someone who makes less than you, and has no idea how hard you work, deciding how much of your paycheck you're entitled to?
Ohh, and the last time I checked, it's a rich man who signs my paycheck, never been employed by a poor guy....
