ShelbyBoy,
The original quote was about Bush saying that everyone who paid taxes got a tax cut. So to make it true, the people of the bottom 50% who paid federal taxes must have a tax cut. Those who did not pay any taxes received no guarantee of anything. Bush never said the "poor" which can mean a lot do not pay taxes. Just that if they did then they received benefit from the tax cuts.
