This was sent to me in an e-mail and thought it was very interesting. The information is from the TAX FOUNDATION.

If you want to know just how effective the mainstream media is, it is
amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is
STEALING FROM them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If any Democrat is elected, ALL of them say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened."
Here is a direct link to the tax tables to show it: http://www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html. When you go to the polls this November, this is just one of many things to keep in mind, especially if you plan to vote for a Democrat.
P.S. I've been sick since Friday, spending a lot of time in bed, so I haven't been spending much time on here. That's why my entries are so short lately. I'll make my way around to everybody, and I want to welcome my new readers. Thank you for reading and commenting! I look forward to catching up in your journals, both new and old readers.
