A Taxing Vote

Or a non-taxing vote, I suppose. Congressional leadership on both sides agreed to keep Bush's tax cuts without even trying to pay for them. The article effectively describes the political pressures acting on both parties to force this agreement - but I have to wonder why hard-core Republicans and actual conservatives still support Bush? I'm not pulling blame from the Democrats here, but why doesn't America's top Republican care more about an out of control deficit? It's not enough that we'll have to deal with an unstabble world, but we'll have no money to deal with it?

Not very Republican of him. And as he makes so clear in what he says and does, he's in charge here.
