It Ain't Rocket Science

Boston Globe (07.05.06), via ThinkProgress:
"Support for tax cuts -- a signature campaign issue for congressional Republicans -- is waning on Capitol Hill, with the GOP-led Congress reaching its Independence Day recess with no tax-trimming victories to tout in home districts. Senate majority leader Bill Frist last week was forced to withdraw a measure to cut the estate tax, which foes derisively call the ``death tax,' because there was not enough support for it." Enthusiasm for tax cuts dwindling as concerns for deficit grow
"Some lawmakers said their constituents, who once clamored for tax cuts, have recently begun quizzing them about the deficit and questioning whether the tax cuts were doing more for wealthier Americans than the middle class." Whether? Ha!
