You guys have to be kidding! I can understand (disagree with, but understand) voting the Dem ticket but to think they will lower a tax bill or do anything to stroke the economy is virtually ridiculous. Even Clinton gave Reagan/Bush the credit for initiating the policies (i.e. greatly cutting taxes) that led to the upswing.

And if you think $800 dollar toilet seats are bad, wait til Gore/Bradley try to get a Gov't controlled healthcare and/or daycare system going. How quick would all of the "HMO Bill of Rights" go out the window. Could we really sue the gov't if we get screwed? I think a reasonable case can be made that one of the big reasons we have extra money here is we no longer have to pour the massive amounts into defense, after Reagan took them down. Yes, we went into debt, but without the widespread communism, (actually not really communist) the world is a much better place.

I guess this is a bit off topic, but go over to Bush's homepage and there is even a simple calculator to see how much you would save off of the marriage penalty.
