I thought the whole thing cost too much...
First Democrats complain President Bush's tax cut cost too much. Now they turn around and scream and holler because a tax credit - which by Democrat logic COSTS 3.5 BILLION DOLLARS - was eliminated FOR PEOPLE WHO PAY NO TAXES!!
From the Minnesota Star-Tribune:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Bush administration on Thursday defended the decision of congressional negotiators to deny millions of minimum-wage-earning families the increased child tax credit..
A quote from Ari Fleischer says it all:
"Does tax relief go to people who pay income taxes and forgive their income taxes, or does it go above and beyond the forgiving of all income taxes, and you actually get a check back from the government for more than you ever owed in income taxes?" he said. "And this is part and parcel of the debate over tax relief. This certainly does deliver tax relief to the people who pay income taxes."
