Petition to End the Bush Tax Cuts

President  Bush will go down in history as the most bumbling, wrong headed, damaging executive this nation has ever known, or hopefully will ever know.  While sending American service members to fight in far too frequent deployments, wars half a world away, Bush asked of the wealthy....nothing... he gave them the lowest tax rate in almost a hundred years.  Iraq is winding down and hopefully we can start withdrawing from Afghanistan soon.   However, the terrible Bush Tax Cuts live on.  The average tax break enjoyed by the top 1% is larger than the average annual income of the 99%!   Under the Bush tax cuts we have seen the largest income inequality in the US since the 1930's.  One in four children in America live in poverty.  While the top 1% own 40% of the nations wealth and the bottom 80% own 7%.  True economic growth begins at the grass roots level, putting money in circulation by the 99%;  not top down, trickle down nonsense.  It's time to end the Bush tax cuts, which are as damaging to this nation as the wrongful invasion of Iraq.
