HOW DO YOU GET ATTENTION FOR YOUR TAX CUT PLAN?

HOW DO YOU GET ATTENTION FOR YOUR TAX CUT PLAN? 

Slip the idea into an episode of NBC's "The West Wing."

That's exactly what happened to the Congressional Progressive (read: Democratic) Caucus idea for a $300 rebate to all “working” Americans.  The American People's Dividend Proposal, which Joe Lieberman supported, failed to gain support in Congress.

Well --- if you can’t get any mileage for your income redistribution plan in the congress … just go to your Hollywood pals.  That’s just what California Democrat Barbara Lee did.  She contacted Lawrence O'Donnell--former staff director of the Senate Finance Committee and current executive producer of "The West Wing"—to float the Democratic plan.


Well, guess what?  The Democrats income redistribution plan will get a mention in an upcoming episode of the West Wing.  Apparently it's that easy for Democrats to call up their buddies in Hollywood to talk policy and get a little help in prime time.

What do you think would happen if a Republican caucus wanted to get its tax cut proposal inserted into an episode of "The West Wing?"  The producers of the show would accuse the Republicans of trying to influence their medium with political messages.  They'd demand an apology from the Republicans for trying to interfere with the creative process!  They'd decry the bias the Republicans are attempting to inject into wholesome family entertainment...all the while failing to see their own liberal biases.

Think about it.  When was the last time you heard a television character say something complimentary about a Republican politician or a conservative idea?

 

 

 

 

DEMOCRATS HAVE THEIR BUSH BASES COVERED

Question:  Who is the only president in the history of the United States to have an MBA? 

 

Answer:  The current president, George W. Bush.

 

A real dummy, right?  Well, that’s certainly the way the left and the Democrats have been trying to portray him for the past year.  A bumbling idiot, a fool. 

Well --- according to most polls --- its “so far, so good” for the Bush presidency.  The public doesn’t seem to be buying the “dummy” line. 

Uh oh.  This means that the Democrats have to come up with a back-up plan.  If Bush actually does a good job and if the public doesn’t follow the liberal lead, the left will have to have another line to float when the next election rolls around.

So --- here it is.  All those good things that happened?  It wasn’t Bush.  It was Cheney.  Everybody knows that Cheney has been running the country anyway, not Bush.  And since Cheney has such a bad heart --- we don’t need to keep taking chances with the country like that, do we?

Smooooooth.

 

 

 

DAN RATHER'S DEMOCRATIC CHEERLEADING 

Apparently Dan Rather's cheerleading for the Democratic Party extends past
the time he's on "CBS Evening News."

At a March 21 Democratic fundraiser in Austin, Texas, Rather was the star attraction.  Donors paid as much as $1,000 to spend a private evening with him.  The Travis County Democrats raked in about $20,000 that night.


Rather claims he didn't know the event was a fundraiser...but stopped short of calling his appearance a mistake.  He also didn't say he would have attended if he'd known in advance that he was being used to raise money.

Right, Dan.  Tell us another one, Dan.

One needs only to look at your storied career to see that you're a bedwetting liberal.  During an interview with Bill Clinton in 1993, you asked him to "tell Mrs. Clinton we respect her and we're pulling for her."  And didn't you say at one point last year that Hitlary Clinton ought to be Time Magazine's Person of the Year?

Yeah, you're unbiased.  If you're unbiased, then I'm the king of Spain.

How should Rather make amends?  The Media Research Center has an idea: Maybe he should write a check for $20,000 to the Travis County Republican Party.

Of course, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the Travis County Republicans shouldn't hold their breath.
 

 

 

 

The Three To Blame

 

 

 My friends, if you don't get a real tax cut over the next ten years, and if this nation's economy and stock market continue to tank, you can thank three Senate Republicans for it: Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, Jim Jeffords of Vermont and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania.

 These three senators - at least as far as I'm concerned - have undermined their president and the president of their party.

 When forced to choose between giving the American people their overpaid tax money back or keeping it in Washington to feed an already bloated, massive federal bureaucracy, they voted to keep your money in Washington. In the process, they have turned over the presidency of this country to Tom Daschle and John McCain.

 Because this tax package is an elemental part of Bush's budget, Daschle is just as happy as he can be with this preliminary vote. These three Republicans have just seen to it that the most powerful man in the U.S. Senate is going to be Tom Daschle.

 Why? For the sake of appearing "bipartisan." I'm not even going to pretend to understand it.

 In addition to these three Republicans quislings, the so-called moderate Democrats in states that George Bush won in last November's presidential election voted to pour your hard-earned money down a bureaucratic rat hole never to be seen again.

 That money has been taken away from you and your family even though the federal government has more than enough money to meet planned requirements.

 Your money will now go to the Democrats, including John Breaux of Louisiana, Max Baucus of Montana, Ben Nelsen of Nebraska, Tim Johnson of South Dakota and Max Cleland of Georgia. These Democrats have done a good job of telling their constituents that they're moderates, while voting like liberals on major tax and spending bills, so I'm just going to expose them today. There's nothing moderate about this, but liberals cannot survive being labeled liberals because it's still a dirty word.

 Only one Democrat had the courage to put the well-being of his country and his constituents before his party. Only one Democrat had the courage to stand up to Tom Daschle of South Dakota and to dismiss all this class warfare propaganda. Zell Miller of Georgia. He's the only Democrat in the Senate who sided with his constituents instead of the bureaucrats and who voted to help spur growth and expansion in an increasingly sick economy.

 I'm going to go over the numbers with you one more time and let you hear exactly how terrible these liberals are. In the next ten years, the federal government will spend $28 trillion of your tax dollars. For anybody to claim that it isn't enough to meet our demands, necessities, and luxuries is a fool and a liar.

 During the same period, the federal government will collect $5.6 trillion more than it needs to fund these spending binges. George W. Bush's tax relief plan would limit the overtaxation of the federal government. Surplus, I've been told by some is not a good word here. We're going to spend $28 trillion. $5.6 trillion more will be taken from us in overtaxation than is needed to pay that bill. Of that, Bush is proposing to keep $4 trillion for the government and return only $1.6 trillion of it over these ten years - and everybody is having a cow saying we can't "afford" it!

 Gephardt and Daschle oppose tax cuts with the refrain: the rich have more than they need. The same thing can be said of the federal government. Yet Chafee, Jeffords and Specter want to keep all your overtaxed dollars in Washington.

 Why don't you see the White House putting any pressure on these three senators? I don't know. I suspect a deal with Jeffords is possible. I have no idea what it would be, but something like that may happen - however it's a dangerous signal to send if Bush starts giving senators whatever they want to win their votes.
