Tax and Unemployment

The Bush Administration's economic stimulus plan will do very little to stimulate anything. He boasts about tax cuts, and the improving unemployment problem (which by the way, he created), but in reality, none of the tax cuts will go in the direction of you or I. More than 50% of this tax cut will go to the richest in America. Additionally, all these tax cuts for the rich are only increasing the burden on states, which means we will see increased state taxes and cuts in public programs, like education and health care.


As for the unemployment issue, 8 million Americans are still out of work. 500,000 have given up looking all together. People all around are still unemployed and the job market is still as tight as ever. Despite what the Bush Administration may claim, it is obvious the realities of the unemployment issue have not changed.

Unemployment Rate Turns Upward

Bush's Plan, Inefficient and Will Not Stimulate Economy
Robert Greenstein, executive director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, analyzes the Bush administration's economic stimulus plan. Greenstein concludes the plan is inefficient and ineffective with benefits in favor of the rich, and working poor families being the big losers.

Unemployment Growth Falls Short
Three years after the start of the recession in March 2001 and 28 months into the official economic recovery, 35 states still have not recovered the jobs they lost and 49 states have seen their working age population grow faster than jobs since the recession began.
