Don't you just hate tax cuts?

Posted By on Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 5:08 PM

Says Republican Steve Womack, Rogers mayor and congressional candidate, in his campaign material pushed out today:

Today, April 15, millions of Americans went to the post office to mail in taxes they see as burdensome.

What he didn't say, and what all the folks signing the "taxpayer protection pledge" aren't blathering on about today, is that those millions of Americans got a tax break thanks to the current Democratic administration in the White House.

Citizens for Tax Justice break out how Arkansans fared in 2009. 99 percent got some kind of tax cut, thanks to Child Tax Credits and Earned Income credit expansions. Even the rich got a break.

Now Huckabee, he wants to dismantle the IRS altogether. Just think -- want a road to drive on to get to work? Build it yourself. An Army? Militias will do. Now that he's a Floridian, he'd probably like to fix up the Everglades his own sef.
