Allowing the cuts to expire would add $1,900 to the tax bill of a family of four with an annual income of $60,000, Bush said.There might be one family somewhere that matches these numbers, but the clear intent is, as usual, deceit.
This is the typical Bushist bullshit that lies with the word average:
All told, he added, 43 million families with kids would have to pay an average tax increase of $2,323.It's really helpful that Bill Gates has kids, but Duhbya is probably also counting Paris Hilton and Warren Buffett's adult "kids".
Note also that CNN/Money reports these bogus numbers with complete abject credulity. After eating seven years of bullshit, you'd think they would have learned how stupid that is.
