    Tax Cut made easy to understand

    Democrats' Version of Tax Cuts:

    If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts (and you are not
    alone), this will explain it for you: 50,000 people go to a baseball game,
    but the game was rained out. A refund was then due. The team was about to
    mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped them and suggested that
    they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat National Committee's
    interpretation of fairness. After all, if the refunds were made based on the
    price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the
    wealthiest ticket holders. That would be unconscionable.



    The DNC plan says:

    People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to
    spend. Call it an "Earned" Income Ticket Credit. Persons "earn" it by
    demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping
    them at entry-level wages.

    People in the $15 seats will get back $15, because that's only fair.

    People in the $25 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of
    money and don't need a refund. If they can afford a $25 ticket, then they
    must not be paying enough taxes.

    People in the $50 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they
    have way too much to spend.

    The people driving by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch the game will
    get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because they need the
    most help.

    Now do you understand? If not contact Representative Richard Gephart or
    Senator Tom Daschle for assistance (Democrats may call collect).
