The Party Of Taxes, And The Party Of Tax Relief

President Bush;
"Unless Congress acts, most of the tax relief we have given over the past 7 years will be taken away. Some one in Washington said that "Letting a tax relief expire is not a tax increase." Try explaining that to 116 million American Taxpayers who will see their taxes rise by an average of $1,800.
...With all the other pressures from their finances American families should not have to worry about the Federal Government taking a bigger bite out of their paychecks. There's only one way to eliminate this uncertainty; Make the tax relief permanent."

At these words, one party stood and cheered (as well as many in the crowd above) and one party sat quietly in a display of protest to the suggestion.
