Rather too bad we couldn't get rid of Clinton. I guess uneducated liberals, like yourself, forget that the stock market crashed in 1999 and 2000 and people lost half of their savings.<quoted text>
You act like the poor don't pay taxes. Seems to me the real crybabies are those who don't want to lose their tax loopholes or have their dividends taxed like everyone else's income.
Fact: Prior to the Bush tax cuts in 2003, dividends were taxed at a higher rate than normal income and, guess what....we were FAR better off. Too bad we can't just rewind the clock and get rid of the Bush administration altogether.
Dec. 2000. For weeks / months the world has been treated to one guess after another as to what great things Bill Clinton would do before he left office so that someone would remember him for something ....
other than sexual perversion and of course: Monica
And last week the world finally saw what the legacy of Bill Clinton
and Liberalism will be: An Epic stock market crash. In a mere 9 months the NASDAQ has lost 50 percent of its value.....
a record fall since the country was formed.
Granted that the vast majority -- made totally ignorant as another
part of the Clinton legacy -- Total Destruction of the Education
system for the insane concept of equality -- are still in total self denial that they made bad choices in choosing stocks and are still completely convinced that if they only do as bubblevision instructed: buy and hold forever they will be wealthy.....while of course in the real world instead of being millionaires they are facing poverty / loss of homes / stress beyond belief.
The reason President Bush lowered the capital gains is because he needed to save some of these people, he had to find a way to get people to invest back in the market to save the 401K's that Clinton had also said everyone should invest--which included labor unions, big companies, little companies, state governments and individuals. No one wanted to invest in America because of Bill Clinton. Frankly it is amazing that GW Bush held this country together as long he did after the Clinton. But hey, Clinton sold more weapons to other countries (on both sides) than any president in history. Clinton sold out the American people in more ways than one.
