Tax cut? What tax cut?
: If anybody on the Bush campaign had thought ahead — and I’m glad they didn’t — they’d have been smart to put up a tax-cut calculator: Put your 1040 in here and see how much you saved. That struck me as I read yesterday’s Times story on how much Bush and especially Cheney saved from the tax cut: smart angle on the story, namely, how the tax cut benefits a couple of very well-known rich guys. I realized that I have no idea what it did or didn’t do for me. It would have been smart of the campaign to put up something on the web telling you what you saved and whom to credit. But, oh, drat, it’s already April 15. Too late.
