Other Bush Scandals

Other Bush scandals include: the secret meetings of Cheney’s “Energy Council,” followed by systematic weakening of America's environmental laws and staffing of the EPA and other agencies with industry insiders, the attempt to dismantle Social Security, the dumbing down of American education through No Child Left Behind, an inherited budget surplus turned into record deficit by waging two wars while cutting taxes--with the vast majority of benefits going to the super-rich, the torture of prisoners and loss of American goodwill overseas, the bullying of administration whistle blowers such as Joseph Wilson (whose wife was outted as a CIA agent), another tainted election with Ohio voting irregularities in 2004, the arrest of White House appointees for assorted crimes, the mistreatment of returning war veterans at Walter Reed and other hospitals, and for a grand finale, a leading role in the collapse of the economy through its aggressive deregulation and non-policing of the financial markets.

Historians Will Judge Bush!

With so much bad news for Americans to handle over eight years of corruption and incompetence, Karl Rove and other White House insiders took to calling any favorable news events that could help people forget bad news as "page turners." Now President Obama also wants America to turn the page and "look forward" rather than go after wrongdoers from the Bush administration, such as those who ordered torture...as if good government no longer required accountability. But those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
Historians will likely judge the Bush scandals
Historians will likely judge the Bush scandals as far more extensive than any that disgraced Grant, Harding, Nixon, or any other American president, due to their sheer scale. He ranks 39th out of 43 presidents in the Siena Institute's survey of 238 presidential scholars released in July, 2010.

I Have Kept A few Records Over The Years!

LQQK Republicans!

Trickle Down!

We have heard for years now that the wealthy and corporations need their tax cuts because without them jobs will not be created and the economy could fall back into recession. I guess I first heard of this concept during the Reagan years with the so-called “trickle down” economics. The claim that economic benefits and improvements trickle down from the very wealthy to the middle class and the poor was one that helped ride Reagan into office and continues to be claimed by some as the way out of recession.

Indeed, the Republicans, since the George W. Bush administration have been insistent that the tax cuts for the wealthy are the key to promote increased employment for the country.

We haven't heeard much about this lately have we?

Lower Taxes For the Wealthy!

It is time that we look deeper into the claim that lowering taxes for the wealthy and for corporations will actually increase employment and separate the truth from fiction.

“Based on IRS figures, the richest 1% nearly tripled its share of America’s after-tax income from 1980 to 2006. That’s an extra trillion dollars a year.

Then, in the first year after the 2008 recession, they took 93% of all new income. Wealth is even more skewed.

The Richest 10%, Own 83% of All Wealth!

The richest 10% own 83% of financial wealth, which they’ve skillfully arranged to be taxed at just 15%, ostensibly because they pump that money back into job-creating ventures.”

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record

President George W. Bush entered office in 2001 just as a recession was starting, and is preparing to leave in the middle of a long one. That’s almost 22 months of recession during his 96 months in office.

Job Creation!

3 Million Jobs!

His job-creation record won’t look much better. The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years, a fraction of the 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton‘s administration.

Just a Fraction Better Than Daddy!

Only slightly better than President George H.W. Bush did in his four years in office.

Way to go Republicans!

Records Back to 1939

Here’s a look at job creation under each president since the Labor Department started keeping payroll records in 1939. The counts are based on total payrolls between the start of the month the president took office (using the final payroll count for the end of the prior December) and his final December in office.
Because the size of the economy and labor force varies, we also calculate in percentage terms how much the total payroll count expanded under each president.

Worst Tract Record!

President Bush, once taking account how long he’s been in office, shows the worst track record for job creation since the government began keeping records.

It is just a video of your God Obama.

Scared of the truth huh.

Your guy Barack is just as big of a liar as Bush.

Now that the House of Representatives (you know a part of congress) has introduced a CR that fully funds the government including Obamacare with the caveat that the original law be enforced without the executive fiats that excluded big business, unions and congress what is your problem?

Do you hate the middle class and the poor the last remaining folks that pay the price?

Time for an honest assessment dude......

I have healthcare, and have had my entire life. I had to sacrifice many things when raising a family to afford the monthly premiums.

Today the premiums have doubled because now I am being forced to pay someone else's.

Personal responsibility is the number one hated measurement of a liberal.

Lack of personal responsibility is a sign of character.

Being considered of poor character due to one's own actions is poison to a liberal.

Falling down hard happens to all....how you get up defines you.

Being defined a loser is tough stuff, but only 1 person can change that status.

That's weird. I pay significantly less than you (or most anyone in the US in my income bracket/age/family status) do by paying to support the NHS as part of my tax burden.

Through this process, I'm still paying to help support folks who aren't able to contribute to their healthcare costs but all of us paying in still all get to pay massively less than Americans do for their own healthcare costs, let alone the tax burden needed to support supplementary programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

We pay less, have a higher rate of individuals with access to healthcare and keep a pretty awesome standard of care. Hrm, I wonder if looking into a wider range of solutions than "pay for yourselves, losers" might benefit the larger society and culture. Seems to have kept a large number of other developed nations from getting the inflated healthcare costs the states are enjoying these days.

You blacks are as dumb as they come. How is anyone being "given" health insurance? They have to PAY and many still can't afford it while others are LOSING the plans they've had for years as the price increases.
Now, the idiotic auto insurance comparison: Who forces you to drive or own a car? If you do neither, you aren't required by law to purchase auto insurance. But with Obamacare, you are forced to purchase a product simply because you EXIST.
Get it, booner boy?

hey moron........In America even tourists get free healthcare.

this is fact.......not even debatable.

I have awesome healthcare, and see the finest specialists in Columbus area. My standard of care has ZERO complaints. I can only say thanks for a great job the healthcare practitioners have provided me.

I paid them of course.

I pay myself into Social security and medicaid. No employer contribution....all of it....self employed you know.

I also pay state, city, and federal income taxes, property taxes and sales taxes. I am forced to pay quarterly to the treasury and State, and city.

Since you want comparisons.....because I pay more in taxes every year, than you, Duke, and Che combined, I wonder when you 3 belly up and pay your fair share?

now complain about my spelling.
