Bush Lies about his Tax Cuts Again

"Most of the tax cuts went to low- and middle-income Americans."—George W Bush, 10-13-04
According to Citizens for Tax Justice, two-thirds of the benefits of the Bush tax cuts have gone to the wealthiest 10 percent of Americans. They get this from Bush Treasury Department Data. And yet, the major news organizations (which Bush tried to denegrate last night when Kerry pointed out that two major news organizations pointed out Bush was lying about Kerry's health plan) want to focus on Kerry saying Bush hadn't met with the Black Caucus.

That's a funny story too. Seems when Bush did meet with the Congressional Black Caucus this past February, it's because the Caucus showed up at the White House and wouldn't leave. They wanted to talk about Haiti. In fact, they were met by Powell and Rice, who said Bush wasn't there. When the Caucus refused to leave, Bush magically appeared and met with them. Bush really did refuse to meet with the NAACP. Nobody wants to talk about that one, either.

So, the one thing Kerry supposedly got wrong, that the media jumped on, he actually got right if you look at the SUBSTANCE of the the subject. If you look at the facts, seems Kerry was right on, and Bush was, well, Bush.
