Tax cuts are now Obama's, not Bush's

Success - Article sent! close

On Dec. 17, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. In doing so, Mr. Obama signed into law a two-year extension of the so called "Bush tax cuts." At that point, Mr. Obama took ownership of the tax rates we now live under. Knowing those to be the facts, why do we still refer to the rates as "Bush tax cuts"? Are they not now the "Obama" tax cuts? Or, at a minimum, the "Obama extension of the Bush tax cuts."

Will this man ever take ownership of anything? Better yet, why do the people allow this man to never take ownership of or responsibility for anything?
