From a fellow ranter

Bushes earned $923,807 last year, Cheneys made $3 million

The federal tax bill for President Bush and his wife: $221,635. That’s how much the Bushes owed on their adjusted gross income of $923,807 for the year 2007, according to a joint return released Friday. The Bushes have paid $203,894 so far, which means they’ll need to break out the checkbook — they owe the government $17,741. – Yahoo News

It kinda makes me sick that the President can owe money to the Government and pay it when ever he wants, but if I owed the Government $17,741, wasn’t rich or Jewish, then they would be after me like crazy.

Their income total includes a $150,000 advance received by Laura Bush for the children’s book she co-authored with her daughter, Jenna. Bush’s salary as president is about $400,000. – Yahoo News

Ok, now for the disturbing part.

The White House also reported that Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, had an adjusted gross income of $3.04 million in 2007.

The Cheneys owed $602,651 in federal taxes on that income. They have paid $466,165 through withholdings and estimated tax payments, and will pay the remaining $136,486 upon filing their tax return. – Yahoo News

I’ve never, ever, ever seen a “VICE” President make more (let alone $3.04 million) money than a President. No wonder Dick Cheney is nowhere to be found, that idiot is out making money while all of us Americans are stuck with no jobs, high gas prices, and an economy so bad that even Canada is laughing at us. Thanks a lot Dick, thanks so much your a real benefit to society, your Halliburton oil, money hungry, company in Suadi Arabia, Iraq, and Libya are really benefiting society.

The vice president’s salary is about $212,000.
