And then there is reality

GWB claims that JFK wants to increase the size of the federal government, but it is GWB who has vastly expanded federal spending and overseen a dramatic expansion of federal power at the expense of state authority and individual civil liberties.

GWB also claims to have a prescription for prosperity. And he is right - he has cured prosperity completely. Of course any drug, and his tax cut cure is no different, does not affect all patients equally. His cure works for the elite that he calls his base, but it is killing the average patient, reducing income by $1,500 for the average family.
