Why give even MORE tax cuts to the rich when the Bush tax cuts for the rich that have been in place for almost 10 years now - utterly FAILED to create a strong economy and strong job growth like the Repubs promised they would?
Instead of a strong economy we got the Bush recession - the worst in 70 years!
And instead of strong job creation we got 8.7 million jobs lost as a result of the Bush recession.
All that the American people have gotten from giving tax cuts to the rich is lower government revenues and an explosion of the National Debt!
I think you are stuck somewhere in 2004. Let me clue you in on a few things:
1) Bush is not the President
2) It's 2012
Hope that helps relieve your state of agitation.
Your clipped snippy terse comment makes it clear that you're the one who's "agitated"!
And FYI the ill effects of the Bush recession are still hurting middle class Americans, the high unemployment rate caused by the Bush recession is still a (easing) problem, and the godawful failed Bush tax cuts for the rich that have added 2.5 TRILLION to the National Debt are still in place!
So, while Bush may be gone - the negative impact of his failed Repub policies continues.
And more pertinently - the Repubs running for president want to reimplement and double down on the same failed Bush/Repub economic policies that we're still trying to recover from!
