Bush Expresses Empathy For Home Owners

George Bush never met a tax cut he couldn’t support, especially if it involved providing the wealthy billions of dollars from the government. Millions of home owners are experiencing difficulty in financing their homes and the president offered his empathy toward their plight. However, when asked about providing financial aid, he responded: “If you mean direct grants for homeowners, the answer would be no, I don’t support that.” One might characterize offering billions in lower taxes to people as a form of “grant” but assuredly that is not the manner in which Bush describes tax cuts. He believes they are necessary to maintain a healthy economy. Maintaining homes does not fit into the category of helping the economy.
