With both houses of Congress, Bush could have given us a new and fair tax system, or at least permanent tax cuts. Instead he settled on a temporary cut that lasted only as long as his term, reflecting his and his father's disdain for tax cuts. But not wanting to loose like his dad, he enacted a phony tax cut. Sadly, this cliff really is Bush's fault. The Bushes single handedly gave us Clinton and Obama, making them the worst presidents in U.S. history.
