Cheney Shaped Tax Policies

Washington Post story (Part 3 of 4):

Cheney had spent months making sure the package contained everything he wanted. One thing was missing.

The president had accepted Cheney's diagnosis that the sluggish economy needed a jolt, overruling senior economic advisers who forecast dangerous budget deficits. But Bush rejected one of Cheney's remedies: deep reductions in the capital gains tax on investments.

The vice president "was just hot on that," said Cesar Conda, then Cheney's domestic policy adviser. "It goes to show you: He wins and he loses, and he lost on that one."

Not for long.

John:

Really? That's a story?

Next you might find that the VP actually VOTES IN THE SENATE. When breaking ties! Yes, I know. Shocking. Plus, when he votes to break ties, he votes according to the way the administration want! Scandalous. Get the impeachment drums banging.
