I need Bush supporters on this board to explain his domestic polcies to me and your views on it. Mainly regarding to tax cuts and tax reform, healthcare reform, and privatization for social securities. I heard many said they disagree with many of Bush’s policies but support him for other reasons. So it will be nice to know what policies the Bush supporters disagree with.
Also, I know many enjoyed the tax cuts and all, but do you think the tax cuts was worth it’s price, given that there were many arguments from the Democrats against the tax cuts, such as:
- Rather than take responsibility for our common future, Bush has shifted costs to states and communities, who then pass them on to you.
- Bush is largely to blame for the fiscal crisis that has forced states and communities to raise taxes and slash services.
- As a direct consequence of his tax policy, over six years an American family of four will take on $52,000 more in its share of the national debt.
I am not going to say I agree or disagree with these statements, but I am wondering if it can be used to explain why we have a Republican mayor here in New York who are raising taxes and slashing services like hell, and we ended up paying a lot more than what we supposedly get back from the tax cuts.
Also, the Republicans supposedly champion a smaller government and lower taxes, but contradictorily they end up spending more than the Democrats. So is the Democrats correct when they claim that Bush is being fiscally irresponsible? And is causing our national debt to go up?
