George W. Doesn’t Want You Calling Them The “Bush Tax Cuts”
Name it after someone else, he says.
“I wish they weren’t called the Bush tax cuts,” the former president said as he kicked off the Bush Institute Conference on Taxes and Economic Growth in New York City. “If they’re called some other body’s tax cuts, they’re probably less likely to be raised.”
To his credit, he adds:
“I don’t think it’s good, frankly, for our country to undermine our president, and I don’t intend to do so,” he said.
