Darth and Taxes

Remember when Bush insisted that most of the tax cuts went to “low- and middle-income Americans”? Well, it’s true.* Humble public servant Darth Cheney, for example, is getting a tidy refund of $1.9 million.



Let me tell you how it will be,

There’s none for you, a mil for me,

’Cos I’m the VP,

Yeah, I’m the VP!

* Dependent, of course, on what your definition of “middle-income” is.

What's really strange about Cheney's taxes is that he supposedly paid more in "estimated taxes" than his actual income. He had an adjusted gross income of $1.9 million, and paid $2.5 million in taxes. Yeah. When have you ever heard of someone giving their ENTIRE income (PLUS another half mint) to the gov't?

Hmm. . .Maybe Arthur Andersen, Enron’s favorite creative accounting firm, “helps” Cheney prepare his returns.
