Because BUSH redistributed wealth by giving stimulus to those who already don't pay taxes.
Okay? Why are we talking about Bush? He gave across the board tax cuts. Are you saying Obama is doing that also? The last time I checked Obama rescinded the Bush tax cuts and only wants tax cuts for the poor(people who didn't even pay any taxes), not the rich(people who paid taxes.
Your hate for Bush and closet love for Obama and his policies are showing dude.
Bush was by far the most conservative candidate running for President. Who did you vote for in 2000 and 2004? I voted for the most conservative viable candidate.
You are a hypocrite by this. There is no way you can be for less government and for higher taxes. Higher taxes is bigger government. That explains alot though. You have posted so wildly it appears you either have no core values or you are a closet liberal who wants to be thought of as an independent. You RP supporters tend to do that alot. You guys hate Bush (very liberal), have lots of hard core liberal tendencies (bigger government and higher taxes as a viable solution), and claim to be independent.
I knew you RP types thought this way but never guessed one of you would actually say it. I appreciate your honesty.
Something you are against yet you still voted for him.
How can you call someone conservative when they doubled the debt in 8 years ?
This is % wise equivalent of obama spending 10 trillion over 8 years.
How does higher taxes mean more govt ?
It means being accountable and paying what you borrowed down.
Something the current neocons have a problem understanding.
Why did govt grow under reagan and both bushes if you say republicans are for small govt ?
You do realize everytime you build the military up, you are increasing the size of govt.
I love how you say it is socialism if obama gives tax breaks to the poor but you supported bush who gave the same thing to those who already don't pay taxes.
And you supported bush who redistributed your wealth over in iraq to rebuild it when they are sitting on oil reserves worth trillions.
Everytime you lower taxes you have to borrow more.
Reagan and bush's economic policies proved this as the national debt increased 8 trillion dollars under them in 20 years.
What is wrong with being accountable for your spending ?
This is like you charging on your credit card over and over and never paying it off even though you have the option to work overtime and pay cash for what you are buying.
No one likes to pay taxes. But the current system is only placing future liability on your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. If you sleep well knowing they will be stuck footing your bills because you wanted lower taxes then good for you.
