Letter — Watch out for devious Dubya

Once again war talk is knocking the economy out of the picture. Remember, a week ago, and all the hubris over Bush’s accelerated tax cut program. The Bush stimulus package is a dud weighted in favor of the investor, corporations, and wealthy. It is a plan conceived by the rich for the rich and George W.’s plan will have little impact on the U.S. economy as the stimulus goes into the wrong hands. Every economist knows, the engine that drives the economy is the hundreds of millions of working Americans, and they’re receiving nothing but a few leftover scraps. Bush spinmeisters are misleading the nation as to the value of this plan through the usual smoke of confusion and trickery. The President’s stimulus involves the elimination of the stock dividend tax which to the average American is as useless as a trip to the moon. Ecomomic stimulus, the Bush plan is not, unless you’re a corporate bigwig, part of the country club set, or the nuvoeu rich.
