    I know what you think as well, the claim you made in post #530 is BS.

    So good it's worth repeating.

    Yup. GWB's "tax cuts for the rich" that Dems dishonestly demagogued in fact made our tax system more progressive.

    I think the whole "tax cuts for the rich" meme was dishonest. As I have already posted, there was significant tax relief at the bottom. Dollar amounts were greater at the top because that's where the money is, and so little was being paid further down the scale.

    If that's your defense then I'll put this one in the "win" column.

    How do you give someone a bigger tax cut than taking their taxes to zero?

    Nobody is disputing that.
