So, one of my former Senators had this to say about the Bush tax cuts:

I would not have voted for [President Bush’s] tax cut, based on what I know…There is no doubt that the people at the top who need a tax break the least will get the most benefit…Too often presidents do things that don’t end up helping the people they should be helping, and their staffs won’t tell them their actions stink on ice.

That Senator: Jesse Helms.
