Former President George W. Bush: I Wish They Weren’t Called the ‘Bush Tax Cuts’
This morning, former President George W. Bush spoke at the New York Historical Society during a conference on “Tax Policies For 4% Growth,” where he spoke publically for the first time about current economic policies.
Bush said, “We believe that government ought to trust the people, the collective wisdom of the people. We trust people when it comes to spending their money and so should the government.”
Bush weighed in on tax policies, saying, “I wish they weren’t called the ‘Bush tax cuts.’” He suggested that if they were named for someone else, they’d be less likely to be raised.
