W'S ACTUALLY DOING THIS BACKWARDS :

Bush to propose tax breaks for small businesses(AP, 3/19/02)
The important thing to keep in mind is that the GOP wins no matter what tax is cut, because it drains the swamp (Washington) of money to waste. He should call in McCain, Gephardt, the Black and Hispanic Caucuses, etc. and tell them all to put every tax break they can think of on the table. Then wrap them up with a big bow and pass them. It looks bipartisan, even though it ultimately serves partisan purposes. It looks like he's "for the little guys" (in other words, huge Democrat special interest groups, instead of huge Republican ones). It would pass, giving him an even greater record of accomplishment to run on (Congressional Quarterly has already done a study showing that he's had the most successful legislative record [his position winning] since LBJ at the height of The Great Society). But most of all, it takes money away from the Federal government and returns it to people. To quote Martha Stewart : "It's a good thing"
