The President's radio address:

Great stuff this week: (emp add)
  • Democrats in the House and the Senate also recently passed their annual budget resolutions. Their budgets would raise your taxes and raise government spending in Washington.
  • ... this would be the largest tax increase in our Nation's history ...
  • Our Nation cannot afford such reckless taxing and spending. Under my Administration, we have kept your taxes low and restrained government spending in Washington.
The Democrats are not raising taxes with budget resolutions. They are making budgets based on the tax law passed by Republicans in 2001. More at Obsidian Wings.


My favorite comment from Obsidian Wings is from baf:

For my part, I accept the phrasing "tax increase". Novak's claim that "House Democrats will adopt a budget resolution containing the largest tax increase in U.S. history" is still false, for the simple reason that the resolution under question does not contain the increase. If the budget resolution contained a tax increase, we could prevent the tax increase by removing it from the budget resolution. But there's nothing there to remove.

Yes, why doesn't Bush loudly call for the Democrats to remove their proposed tax increase from the budget? Because there isn't one in there, that's why.
