Just Livin' The Dream

Herbert: "As far as the Bush administration is concerned, the gap between the rich and the rest of us is not growing fast enough. An analysis by The Times showed the following:

"Under the Bush tax cuts, the 400 taxpayers with the highest incomes - a minimum of $87 million in 2000, the last year for which the government will release such data - now pay income, Medicare and Social Security taxes amounting to virtually the same percentage of their incomes as people making $50,000 to $75,000. Those earning more than $10 million a year now pay a lesser share of their income in these taxes than those making $100,000 to $200,000." [NYT]

Is this the "American Dream" that you signed up for when you voted for Bush??? I didn't think so! Enjoy your low-paying job that will soon be shipped off to China or India. Aren't you glad that you voted for Bush because of his "morals?" Well, you reap what you sow...
