Tax and Spend?

President Bush, in New Hampshire, called Senator Kerry a “tax and spend liberal.” It’s not the first time he’s made that tired complaint, but apparently it resonates.


For his part, Bush is a “give back the tax and spend conservative.” That policy has taken us in four short years from a 3 ½ trillion dollar forecast surplus this decade to a 4 ½ trillion deficit. Net loss, eight billion.


The entire history of “tax and spend liberalism” doesn’t begin to equal that figure and our kids will have to pick up George Bush’s check.
