Bush left office six years ago -- and his tax cuts still constrain President Barack Obama's agenda.

Bush Tax Cuts and the Deficits: Many commentators have tried to argue that the Bush tax cuts caused the deficits of the past decade, and are primarily responsible for the deficits projected for.

    Actually, the Bush tax cuts are more generous to all of the lower- and middle-income groups. The eighth and ninth highest-earning groups get more savings from the state-local deduction, and the top group gets slightly more from the Bush tax cuts The two most commonly abused phrases in this debate are “rich” and “middle-class.”.   The wisdom and folly of the Bush tax cuts lion's share of the dollar savings. (The same law cut the estate tax to zero by ) with a value-added tax — a sort of national sales tax.
