Bush Promotes Tax Dodging

President Bush on August 28th, 2004, in Troy, Ohio:

...Every time they say, tax the rich, the rich dodge and you pay. ...

President Bush on August 28th in Perrysburg, Ohio:

...Well, the rich dodge and you get stuck with the bill. ...

President Bush on August 28th in Lima, Ohio:

...The rich dodge and you get stuck with the bill. ...

President Bush on August 26th in Farmington, New Mexico:

...Guess what? The rich dodge and you pay. ...

President Bush on August 9th, Annandale, Virginia:

...Just remember, when you're talking about, oh, we're just going to run up the taxes on a certain number of people -- first of all, real rich people figure out how to dodge taxes. ...

President Bush on July 14th in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin:

...That's not the way it works in the tax code. The big rich dodge taxes, anyway. ...

Leona Helmsley quoted in the New York Times on July 12th, 1989:

We donít pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.

Why is President Bush soft on rich tax dodgers like Leona Helmsley? Maybe the president is trying to tell us something. After all, Bush and his family are rich, along with many members of his administration. Are these the musings of a guilty conscience?

Whenever this administration has a plan -- they use repition to drive it home.

Rumor had it that Bush was going to propose doing away with the IRS and replacing it with a national sales tax...

So why aren't we seeing an ad that equates tax dodging rich folks with aiding terrorism? If they aren't paying into the system, they're hurting homeland security, afterall...
