My good personal friend RNC chair Ken Mehlman sent me an email on Thursday that, in part, said:
Tomorrow, as Americans pay their taxes, millions are benefiting from the much needed tax relief that was championed by President Bush and Republicans in Congress. Because of the tax relief, Tax Freedom Day, the day when Americans finally have earned enough money to pay off their total tax bill for the year, is today ? 18 days earlier than it was in 2000 when Bill Clinton was President. Thanks to President Bush and Republicans in Congress, while many Americans prepare to file taxes tomorrow, we can celebrate Tax Freedom Day today because we are keeping more of our own money.That's fine so far as it goes, but if hardworking people, such as myself, work harder over the next eight and half months and make more money to do more to bolster the economy and pay for dominating the world, my overall taxes will increase at a different rate, due to commie progressive tax rates, which means that I will not become free of taxes on April 14.
I am still a slave, just as Iraqis were under Saddam, and I blame one person for this: President George W. Bush!
Mehlman goes on:
But that could change if liberal Democrats regain control of Congress in the 2006 mid-term elections and roll back President Bush's tax relief measures. With some of these tax cuts set to expire in a few years, we cannot allow the Democrats to run out the clock and raise taxes on every taxpayer!Not really. The current tax structure is in place and, if is considered as a multi-year system, as it should be, it is not a change in the tax rates to not change the tax rates. This stuff isn't difficult to figure out.
