Five Cartoons About The Bush Tax Cuts

President Obama is calling for a one-year extension of the Bush tax cuts for families making less than $250,000 a year. Don’t expect the President to be able to sway Republicans in Congress, who continue to argue that the Bush tax cuts should be extended for everyone, including higher earners.

Here are what a handful of our cartoonists think about the Bush tax cuts…

At least he knows how to spell "garbage." Too bad he neither understands or can spell "liberal."

It appears ignorance is no longer bliss. Instead it's angry.

Ignorance is when you simply don't know something. Stupid is when you do know better and still cling to your old beliefs.

One thing the past three GOP Administrations have established is that the GOP is the Party of Wealth Redistribution. Where are the jobs that 20+ years of tax cuts for the "job creators" were to create? There aren't any. No job creation, Reagan was #5 out of the past 6 Presidents. Instead, it has been only wealth creation for the 2%, together with massive Federal Debt which subsidized that wealth, which the taxpayers will have to pay down.
Strange, 8 years of Bush/Cheney telling us deficits don't matter, then suddenly the Bush meltdown occurs, Obama gets elected, and suddenly it is all about deficits, so much so, that now the GOP wants more tax cuts for job creators, more deregulation, but now, Wait!, Not only do they want to reduce Federal revenues again, they want to add more austerity and across the board Federal spending cuts, guaranteed to stall any recovery.

GOP=No solutions, no answers, just more of the same failed trickle down economic policies, now supplied with unlimited funding by its supporters who have the most to gain though more tax cuts, more deregulation, and economic policies which will guarantee an unlimited supply of cheap labor.
