Congressman John Yarmuth on the Bush tax cut nightmare: “The long-term costs of this bill are far more damaging to our nation than the short-term gains. Borrowing money to give tax cuts to the rich – tax cuts that are more than most families make in a year – is unconscionable. Economics shows this is a dead-end. History proves it would be disastrous. And basic morality dictates that our priorities should focus on making our economy work for everyone – not just the wealthy few.” [Press Release]

  1. Hopefully, with Churchill getting into the casino business, they’ll learn something about customer service. Right now, they haven’t a clue.

  2. John Yarmuth continues to show he has the guts to speak the truth. I admire this guy.
    Its one thing to pop off about balancing the budget. It is another to try and do it. Giving a huge tax cut to wealtest 39,000 families in America as you give a tax raise to those people making less than 20,000 a year and families making less than 40,000 a year is simply stupid.
