Bush Budget

George W. Bush

By far the vast majority of my tax cuts go to the bottom end of the spectrum.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71). The bottom 60% got 14.7% of the cuts. So by bottom, perhaps Bush means anyone below the top 3 billionaires.
This is an impressive crowd. The haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71) at the Al Smith Dinner, New York, 2000-10-20.
It is pointless to make the rich pay their fair share of taxes because the really rich people figure out how to dodge taxes anyway.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2004-08-09
You know what would happen, they hire accountants and lawyers and you get stuck with the bill.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2004-09-04 on why it is pointless to tax the rich.
Sometimes things aren’t exactly black and white when it comes to accounting procedures… I still haven’t figured it out completely.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), when asked for details about his dealings with Harken Energy Corp., of which he was on the audit committee. George W. Bush’s father was in office in 1990 when he sold his Harken stock and the SECC (Single Edge Contact Cartridge) did not pursue a case. 2002-07-08
If someone does not pay his or her debts, the rest of society ends up paying them.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2005-04-20, on allowing debtors to continue to hound creditors even after they go bankrupt. He seems though to be commenting on the trillions in debt he is leaving as a legacy.
There’s a trade deficit. That’s easy to resolve: People can buy more United States products if they’re worried about the trade deficit.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2004-12-15, implying that concern over the trade deficit is flaky.
We can cut the deficit in half over the next five years.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2004-01-20 in SOTU address, but, of course, we have absolutely no intention of doing it!
Outsourcing is just a new way of doing international trade. More things are tradeable than were tradeable in the past. And that’s a Good Thing™.
~ N. Gregory Mankiw (1958-02-03 age:60), chairman of Bush’s Council of Economic Advisors.
Explaining why George’s record for exporting American jobs to India was a Good Thing™.
Bush signed his report.
We already gave the rich a tax cut so why are we giving them another one?
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71) at a staff meeting reported by Paul O’Neill, Secretary of the Treasury.
We will spend $3.3 trillion over the next 10 years on top of — on top of the $1.9 trillion budget. We still have trillions of dollars left in the surplus.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), Inside Politics, 2000-08-22
failing miserably in his Great Carnack impersonation.
We must create a [economic] crisis in order to ensure that there is no alternative to a smaller government.
~ Jeb Bush (1953-02-11 age:65) Imprimis Magazine 1995
This may explain why brother George seems to be intentionally attempting to tank the economy.
To bring about a genuine political realignment, Republicans must kill the Government Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs — the very Goose they have fought so hard and long to possess.
~ Jeb Bush (1953-02-11 age:65) Imprimis Magazine 1995
In other words, Jeb wants to stop the functions of government that create prosperity. The man is either nuts, or has the same problems with English as his brother.
We mustn’t assume that we are going to deinvent government solely from inside the Beltway or within one or two sessions of Congress. We will do it one step at a time, in one community at a time – at the local level and through local institutions like churches, nonprofit and volunteer organizations and families.
~ Jeb Bush (1953-02-11 age:65) Imprimis Magazine 1995
Jeb wants to destroy democratic government and hand the reigns to private corporations, much the way society was organised in the 1800s, without any regulation on the robber barons. He must have been impressed by the 1975 sci if movie, Rollerball, starring James Caan.
Sometimes things aren’t exactly black and white when it comes to accounting procedures.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71)
It’s clearly a budget. It’s got a lot of numbers in it.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2000-05-05
It’s your money. You paid for it.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2000-10-18, LaCrosse, Wisconsin
Well, I don’t know if you saw the report that came out — recently came out. It showed that the federal deficit is projected to be $94 billion less than previously expected.
~ George W. Bush (1946-07-06 age:71), 2005-08-03 In other words he is praising himself for inaccurately estimating. He was embarrassed say what the deficit amount actually was, the highest in recorded history.
