Of course the article fails to mention that Revenues ALWAYS hit record numbers each April as it is the month that everyone tallys up their previous year's taxes AND the month that everyone pays Q1 estimated.

And the part where they are only expecting a $200BILLION Deficit for this year. Just ignore that part. That will only cost taxpayers an additional $18Billion per year in interest from now on. That should spur the economy on.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Since the tax cuts have tax receipts:
A) Increased
B) Decreased
C) Remained unchanged
D) It doesn't matter, I hate Bush

Actually, the article does mention that "Tax collections swell in April every year as individuals file their tax returns by the deadline." You just can't stand the possibility that President Bush's economic policies are working...
