Democrats to look at tax cuts, rebates (S.A. Miller and Sean Lengell, January 16, 2008, Washington Times)

House Democratic leaders yesterday said they were open to an economic-stimulus package with tax cuts for small businesses and rebate checks to U.S. consumers that are not "paid for" with tax increases, moves likely to win Republican support.

One of the big things that separates W from Ronald Reagan is that not only will he have cut taxes every year of his presidency but he'll never have raised them.

Time to call out certain folks' political sentiments in 2008 and beyond. IF:

1. GW Bush has one foot out the door.
2. Dem Presidential candidates have raised more than GOP candidates by at least a 60-40 margin.
3. All responsibility for everything transfers on 1/20/2009.

Then why on earth would Bush or any GOPer be in any hurry to do any sort of "stimulus" for the economy? If the GOP loses on 11/4, the GOP can blame the Dems on 11/5 (especially if Dems will get credit for the turnaround starting 11/5). If the GOP wins on 11/4, then the winner gets cover to do his own thing while everyone else blames W.
