Newsflash: For seven years, George Bush has collected your taxes, and spent your money.
He may have collected those taxes in a more unfair manner than in the prior decade. And he may have spent much of that money in ways that weren’t economically helpful or supported by the public.
Nevertheless, the record is clear. He has had a seven-year policy and taxing and spending.
Yet when Bush vetoed the annual bill that determines what we invest in labor, health and education, he railed against “the cost of tax-and-spend policies.”
