[President Bush] has given huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country, and now all these terribly conservative folks, who pride themselves on financial responsibility, want to add $700 billion.
My view: It is the fiscally responsible thing to pay for this — and given the fact that the people on top have done well [under Bush] — through a progressive tax. […]
I’ve believed that Bush’s tax breaks for the wealthy should be repealed for some time. The middle class has shrunk; the rich have become richer. […] They are paying a lower tax rate than working class people.
