George W. Bush: I Wish They Weren't Called The Bush Tax Cuts

Never cared that much for GW..Until Obama came to town. Sure makes me miss Bush now!

President George W. Bush called for pro-growth tax policies to create a more robust private sector Tuesday morning in a rare public appearance.

Growing the public sector is easy, Bush said, “just raise taxes.” Supporting private-sector growth is more challenging the former commander-in-chief said, and requires leaving more capital in the hands of job creators.

      You could work for the MSM with that bullshit. Or maybe NBC.

      Some friendly advice: when pickledpug gives you a thumbs up, you should start to worry. That, or get better antidepressants.

  • Reality Check: We've spent the past 10 years basing our entire tax and economic policies on this exact "trickle down" theory. The wealthiest Americans are paying the lowest tax rates they have in decades. Our "sky high corporate taxes" the Right complains about are so full of loopholes many corporations pay little or no federal taxes at all or hide money in off-shore subsidiaries. Anyone who complains about our current economic woes needs to look no further than the ultim More..

    If that monicker is the worst thing we can nail to Bush's backside, I'd say we have FAILED, MISERABLY, as a society.

  • Sure, we shouldn't call them Bush tax cuts...what about Republican tax cuts, since the GOP never really gave up pushing them for the upper crust.

  • why don't we have more tax cuts for middle america and small businesses ? why aren't we cutting government jobs ? or at least making them take a wage cut ? We should be cutting through the bureaucratic red tap that gives random titled jobs to people. "Leaving more captial in the hand of job creators" ? The banks got bailed and don't want to loan to anyone. Large corps are all sitting on money, afraid to spend or expand, because the banks are just hoarding the money and sitting on it. M More..

    • @mylostsoul I agree with you about the need to hold the banks accountable and provide more middle class and small business tax cuts (REAL small businesses, not ones that bring in millions of dollars/year but call themselves "small" because they have less than 400 employees), but Government at the state, local and federal levels has shed more jobs over the past 3 years than it has in decades.

    • @picklethepug not in CA they haven't we keep finding more obscure jobs, we just found an agency who spent almost a million dollars for a "company retreat" in nevada, 3 leaders of this agency were smart and stepped down. not to mention the burdening welfare system we have here

    • @mylostsoul there is waste everywhere and there always will be. The same argument could be made against wealthy people and corporations that whine about taxes and regulation but still manage to rake in billions of dollars in profits and millions in personal income.

  • If you look at the figures for the total tax take no party has truly decreased taxes, they just reduce one tax and introduce or increase another. Also the corporate tax take in the USA in the 1920's was over 30% now it is less than 15% and getting lower and it hasn't increased manufacturing at all. In fact BBC looked at a study into taxes in regards to corporations and for those countries that did lower the corporate tax bracket it did have short term growth but long term it all fell apart becau More..

      How about you explain to us WHY these companies have chosen to shift 80% of their work force to other countries?

    • @MajorTom because corporate tax rates are lower in other countries, but the difference is made up in high personal income taxes. Since these US companies are only invested at the corporate level, they game the system by taking advantage of the lower foreign corporate rates while still enjoying their lower US individual tax rates.

      I know. This is why I was asking this asshole. Thank you though!

      *EDIT* In all fairness I guess the original comment was not too bad. I just blame the government for forcing the labor overseas. Government regulation is what made it too damn expensive here. Period! The Democrats and Republicans are the two wings of the same bird of prey!

    • @MajorTom People often point at wages or taxes for making jobs go overseas but I can show a case were both the taxes and wages are higher than the USA but they are doing really well. Im talking about the South Korean ship building industry, they have succeeded even with high wages and taxes because they are incredible efficient and fast and the government "stays out of the way". Also the CEO's of these South Korean ship building companies only get around USD$250k a year, the same CEO i More..

    Hey Boy George,there is only 1 thing that creates jobs.That is the demand for goods and services.That demand will never increase with the current war on good paying jobs by greedy corporate interests.
