Wictory Wednesday - Last night, while watching dinner, I saw my first Kerry for President ad. In the ad, Kerry promises to deal with the federal deficit and provide more entitlement programs by repealing "Bush's tax cut for the wealthy." This year, a family making over $30,000 was able to cut their taxable interest by over $2000 with a higher standard deduction and exemptions. This is the first year since I've been married that my wife and I haven't paid higher taxes because we're married.
Are we wealthy, Senator Kerry? We saved money because of Bush's tax cut, so I guess that puts us in the caviar-eating set. The image of an elitist patrician Kerry (favorite phrase: "Do you know who I am?") standing up for the little guy would be funny if it weren't going to cost me money.
Kerry has tried to deny it, but repealing the Bush tax cuts would hurt middle-class Americans. His supporters, caught up in the unattractive emotion of class envy, don't seem to care. We should.
