Bu$h Regime Ca$hing in Big Time (UPDATED)

The President and his cabinet will personally save hundreds of millions of dollars by repealing the estate tax. Not for us... for them. Isn't that wonderful? How nice for them! I'm sure they'll each do a lot of good in the world with all that money.

How many average working stiffs out there will benefit? How many average Joe's and Jane's are anxiously awaiting the repeal of the estate tax? It doesn't matter, because we'll all be happy to pay a greater share of the burden so the richest of the rich can demonstrate that old money never goes out of style.

That's okay. We will keep working harder for less money, while the Bush league eliminates overtime pay and throws parties for porn stars. After all, he only way to defeat those terrorists is on the strength of our "Christian values", right?

UPDATE: Can non-busheviks do better? Link 1, Link 2, Link 3.

I was listening to NPR this AM and heard a report on corporate tax evasion via the Cayman Islands. No doubt, regardless the espoused goals of this Administration, the W, Rove and Co is all about furthering the Rich and fucking the poor. (sorry for the explative, but I am getting tired of this strategy disquised as policy designed for all).

Indeed. I am going to post a follow up from a related commentary in another blog (boy this gets confusing!)

Remember when they were trying to pretend this was all about family farms?
