It's In "Their" Genes?

Charles Rangel is black. We assume here that when George talks about someone being genetically predisposed to something, he means politically as opposed to racially. Though with a number of Republicans these days, it's hard to tell. LATimes (10.24.06):
"'America should not be fooled by the empty rhetoric of Democrats running for office,' Bush said, in a partisan stump speech he is likely to use often in the two weeks before the elections. Referring to comments by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), who would be chairman of the Ways and Means Committee if Democrats win control, Bush added, 'They're genetically disposed to raise your taxes.'" Bush launches political attack against Democrats
They are? Interesting way of putting it, don't you think? Anyway, good old bonddad reminds us once again of whose interests George really has at heart with the big, bad tax cuts. How much did you benefit from the tax cuts? If you were a rich guy, you did mighty well. Guys making more than a million a year got (on average) a tax cut of $35,491.00. On the other hand, if you're making between $75K to $100K? Well you benefited to the tune of (cue drum roll) - a little over $7.00 a month. The average tax cut for all Americans across all incomes? $151.00. Ha, ha. Pretty funny, huh? Guess the joke's on the 88% of you who make 100K or less.
