Are You Opposed To Bush's Tax Cut?

During the Presidential election, many Democrats voiced concerns over George Dubya Bush's proposed tax cut, calling it "risky", "unneeded", or "a kickback for the rich". In the spirit of bipartisan compassionate conservative compromise, we here at The Cape Rock would like to offer a plan that will hopefully satisfy both sides.

For Republicans, you can have your tax cut. For Democrats, you can still have the high tax rate that you have been so vocal in supporting. Simply check the box at Item 15(d), Section 5(c), Page 24, Schedule III of this year's 1040-NOT-SO-EZ IRS form, and you will be able to pay the higher tax rate.

Under this innovative plan, Democrats opposed to tax cuts will have the opportunity to voice their protest against George Bush in a serious, meaningful way. Plus, the additional revenue from this plan will hold off any budget cutbacks, thus ensuring that Congressmen (oops, I mean "Congresspeople") will be able to maintain the same level of pork spending that they have become accustomed to.

It's a win-win situation for everybody.
