Kerry's Taxes Earlier this year

Kerry's Taxes

Earlier this year when we had our 2003 taxes done, something happened to hubby and I that hadn't happened in the first 8 years we were married. We actually got money back from the IRS. And in 2003 we made more money than we did in the previous years. We wondered how the heck that happened. Bush's tax cuts, that's what happened. He not only lowered taxes, he got rid of the marriage penalty tax. Do we know we were so excited by the money we got back we went out and spent that money. Yep we spent it, putting it back into the economy. Just as Bush thought people would do.

Kerry has publically said he would repel Bush's tax cuts because he felt they only helped the rich and the middle class got nothing. In fact Kerry claims the middle class pays more in taxes than the "rich" do. Well I dispelled that theroy a couple days ago.

This link shows us the differences between Bush and Kerry and the subject of taxes. Do you know we are basically working for free until May of each year, because the first four months of the year is what we are paying in taxes.

Did you know that the top 5% of wage earners pay 53.25% of taxes, the top 50% of wage earners pay 96.03% of taxes. Guess that dispells Kerry's theroy about the poor paying all the taxes doesn't it?

Did you know that Kerry voted 350 times while in Congress to raise taxes, guess that tells us what he actually did during his congressional terms. He also voted for Clintons tax hikes, the largest tax hikes in US history.

Did you also know that in 5 years Kerry donated only $3000 (approx) while Bush in only 3 of those same years donated just over $100,000 to charities. Guess we know where Kerry's priorities lie.

Take a look at the tax return you got for 2003 and kiss it goodbye if Kerry gets elected.
