Deficits via the Bush option are an absolute; so much so that key Conservative support is falling off in droves:
A group whose mission statement is to abolish taxes is non-partisan? Funny, they're the ones who did the "report", which amounts to Las
Vegas handicapping the Super Bowl in it's veracity, and are calling themselves "non-partisan".
It carries as much truth as Bush calling himself a "Compassionate Conservative".
Bout Time, I went back and reviewed NTU site to look for a statement that said "abolish taxes" and I could'nt find that but what I did find is this
list of their accomplishments which I find worthy and useful for taxpayers of either persuasion;
A few of our significant accomplishments:
* Income tax indexing, so inflation no longer bumps taxpayers into higher brackets
* Landmark "Taxpayer Bill of Rights" laws that help to safeguard against IRS abuses
* Bringing the Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution within one vote of passing the Congress
* Reform of taxpayer-funded Congressional mailing system, and public mailing cost disclosure by each member of Congress
* Repeal of the Catastrophic Surtax on senior citizens
* Dozens of successful state and local tax limitation movements -- activists have defeated 90% of the 50 major tax increases that appeared on
state ballots over the past five years .
I especially want to point out their support of a balanced budget amendment - whats partisan about that ?
The take I get from them is they support reform not elimination of taxes.
