What the Media Forgot to Tell You About the Bush Tax Cuts


The Bush Tax Cuts are a great tool that the left uses to set up the “us vs. them” platform, with “them” invariably being the super wealthy. There are a lot of misconceptions regarding the Bush tax cuts, all of them deliberately propagated by none other than Obama and pals. Dana and her fantastic crew over here at BigJournalism can tell you all about them. The biggest lie of them all is that these tax cuts will only affect the wealthiest two percent. To hear Harry Reid’s spin on it, only the folks with monocles and meerschaum pipes need fear this administration. In my quest to debunk said myth, I headed down to Leland International in Grand Rapids, Michigan as part of my multi-part video series on the Bush Tax Cuts. I chose Leland Int. because it’s a truly small business, the owner is passionate about his work and above all else, he has two daughters… and I’m desperate.

Behold, the face of the heinous two percent. Surprising? Well, it shouldn’t be. If you’ve been following the administration’s crawl towards redistributive change, you know that the effects of repealing these tax cuts won’t be isolated to the super wealthy. Instead, they’ll be coming to your towns, businesses and eventually your very own homes. Remember that when you vote.
