    If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts
    (and you are not alone), maybe this will help explain it for you:

    50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was
    rained out.
    A refund was then due. T
    he team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional
    Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out
    refund amounts based on the Democrat National Committee's
    interpretation of fairness.

    After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each
    person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the
    ticket holders of the most expensive tickets.
    That would be unconscionable.

    People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have
    less money to spend. Call it an "Earned Income Ticket Credit."
    Persons "earn" it by demonstrating little ambition, few skills and
    poor work habits, thus keeping them at entry-level wages.

    People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because that's
    only fair.

    People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already
    make a lot of money and don't need a refund.
    If they can afford a $50 ticket, then they must not be paying
    enough.

    People in the $75 luxury seats will have to pay another $50,
    because they have way too much to spend.

    The people driving (or walking) by the stadium who couldn't
    afford to go to the game will get $10 each,
    even though they didn't pay anything,
    because they need the most help.
    (Sometimes known as Affirmative Action)

    Now do you understand?
    If not, contact Representative Richard Gephardt,
    Senator Tom Daschle or Senator Hillary Clinton for assistance.

    In this case, two out of three STILL isn't good enough.
