I'll be doing some of my own research on this, but I'm curious to hear everyone's take on Bush's proposed tax cut, as far as what programs will suffer as a result, where the hell they think this money is going to come from, and over what period of time this $550 billion is being cut.
I ask because Sen. Ben Nelson is considering voting for Bush's version of the tax cut (as opposed to the lesser cut proposed by others in the Senate), in return for $20 billion for aid to states, about $150 million of it going to Nebraska.
Now, I'm no economist, but I'm anxious to know where all the dough is coming from. How is it so easy to make this big of a tax cut, and still have $20 billion to throw around to the states? When I ponder this, I see an image in my head of a bunch of congressmen sitting around a big game board, playing with Monopoly money.
I welcome your thoughts. Fuckers.
