For once, Brett Marston and I agree on something:
ONE **TRILLION** DOLLARS, TWO **TRILLION** DOLLARS Democrats need to start using this word — TRILLION — more often. The Republican tax cut plan is a tax cut close to ONE TRILLION DOLLARS if one factors in all of the cuts that eventually Bush will argue need to be made permanent. ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. You don’t even HAVE to say it in your Doctor Evil voice for it to sound creepy and wrong.
He’s exactly right. The Democrats are trying to take an obscene amount of money–ONE TRILLION DOLLARS–out of the pockets of hardworking American citizens; President Bush and the Republicans are fighting to let them keep it. The Democrats need to make this a central issue in their campaign.
