Reactive Politics: Nothing like well thought out analysis as to our country's future. Based on the recent war, the Senate voted down Bush's proposed tax plan. If this doesn't show how taxes are solely the province of vote-getting, nothing will. Just a while ago, with war looming, cutting taxes made sense. Just a while ago, with an already enormous deficit around the bend, it was important for the little people to get back $600 checks, and save a % on their taxes. Now, all of the sudden, it doesn't make sense. Huh? It's not like the war was going to only cost $5B a few weeks ago, and $70-something billion now. Senators want $100B to go into some sort of war fund. Flying by the seats of their expensive suit pants, they are.
