    the only way the cbo could argue that rich gained more would be to say the rich got a higher dollar amount back,but of course someone making 15 million will get back more from a 4.5% drop than someone in a lower bracket with a 10% drop.that doesnt show tax burden,thats playing the numbers in a hope someone would be stupid enough to fall for it.


    how did the rich benefit more???85% cost goes to middle and lower class,by dollar amounts 85% of the benefits go to middle and lower class,if the middle class was broken into smaller brackets vs clintons few brackets,but super rich still fell into the highest bracket,how does that give the rich more benefit.


    again your studies are going by dollar benefit per person,not a percentage or cost basis,and ofcourse someone who makes way more money will pay way more,and even the smallest decrease in taxes will resort to more back dollar wise in taxes than any other class,but not percentage wise.

    ALL Democrats will vote for it, and possibly enough Republicans will vote for it, as they won't be voting for a tax-increase on anyone, thereby not violating the Norquist Pledge.

    You have not provided a link from any organization more credible than the CBO that states the rich did not benefit most from the Bush tax cuts.

    Do you have one or not?

    You have already agreed the CBO study I referenced was accurate. Having second thoughts now?

    catawba basically admitted only rich pay the bulk of taxes and tax load,therefore benefit from tax cuts.

    You have provided no statement from the Treasury that refutes the study by the CBO.

    In between your searches to try to find an organization as authoritative as the CBO to back up your claim, see the ultra conservative, turtledude's posts above where he agrees the rich benefited most from the Bush tax cuts.

    So you are finally coming around now to agreeing with the CBO study?
