Fair and Balanced

Look at the bomb Bush dropped on a Fox News interview this weekend.

BUSH: Most Americans feel overtaxed and I promise you the Democrat [sic] party is going to field a candidate who says I’m going to raise your tax.

If they’re going to say, oh, we’re only going to tax the rich people, but most people in America understand that the rich people hire good accountants and figure out how not to necessarily pay all the taxes and the middle class gets stuck.

We’ve had — we’ve been through this drill before. We’re only going to tax the rich and all you have to do is look at the history of that kind of language and see who gets stuck with the bill.

Wow, did he really just say that?!?!? I guess I understand the GOP tax cut plans now which usually benefit these guys who already have a loophole around the tax issue. Maybe its just a way to save heartbreak cause if you can't get them to do it right just let them off the hook and then its not a problem. It may be true that the middle class will end up footing some of the bill, but its not like we don't already have that problem.

So since the wealthy can hire accountants, we should just write off their obligation to pay taxes? WTF? I guess that, because they can hire lawyers too, we should just accept the fact that they are going to break the law and get away with it? Wow.
