So here's the lowdown on the Republican tax deal: Middle income earners will see about $20.00 of relief per-year, while people making over a million dollars will see greater than $40,000 in relief:

"Middle income households would receive an average tax cut of $20 from the agreement, according to the joint Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center, while 0.02 percent of households with incomes over $1M would receive average tax cuts of $42,000."

The GOP tax deal will add $70B to the nation's deficit so, as Republicans say, they can keep this "great" economy rolling along. And it has been the greatest of all economies for the wealthiest Americans. Heaven knows the economy has been for EXXON's CEO. For working people, however, who've seen their wages fall, or grow too little to keep up with rising costs---a living and never-ending nightmare. But hey, at least they'll get $20 bucks.

Regardless, the purpose of providing this information is simple: Now, the American people can vote Republican in 2006. Never mind America, that the whopping $20 bribe offered in this so-called tax-cut won't be enough to cover the cost of the gas you'll burn getting to the polling booth---vote Republican, because they're the Party of cutting taxes.

Poor Americans---you really upset the GOP when you refused their $100.00 gas bribe. Now, you'll get $20 bucks...one-fifth the original bribe. Still, you'll slip in the booth and show your gratitude for their generosity by pulling the lever, and all the while forgetting that you paid $21,000 for gas getting to the polls. That's alright though. Just pass that lost buck onto your children. You know, like the Republicans are doing with the $70B deficit so they can give a tax break to their wealthy firends.
