DeLay Presses for More Tax Relief

Tom Delay, the Left’s current enemy #1, is already talking about more tax cuts. Former Republican John McCain, on the other hand, is bemoaning the Administration’s failure to include more payments to low-income Americans as part of the tax cut plan: “My God, what kind of a message are we sending when we leave out low-income families and exactly in that category are the enlisted men and women who are fighting in Iraq?” DeLay responds succinctly: “It’s a little difficult to give tax relief to people who don’t pay any taxes.”
Lately the newspapers have been full of silly reports about the child tax credit and its role in the current tax reductions. If someone wants to argue that the government should write larger checks to low-income families, fine. But doing so is an increase in a welfare program, not a tax cut.
