Refundulations Round #2

Dear President Bush,

After the Jack Abramoff scandal broke I noted the round of "tainted campaign donations" refunded to charities. It appears another round of donation “hot potato” is occurring. Campaign gifts from Neil Volz seem as radioactive as Mr. Abramoff’s. One key leader, House Majority Leader John Boehner believes he earned both his Abramoff and Volz donation. What kind of hard work did he do for them or their clients? I am sure you are conducting an investigation.

Another refund story splashes the front page, this time around tax cuts. A $70 billion tax cut is slated for vote this evening. Lou Dobbs just showed it would save a citizen making $20,000 to $30,000 almost $10 in taxes while the millionaire pockets an extra $41,000.

It looks like round #3 of refundulations may be just around the corner. What else are the rich going to do with all that money, other than buying future tax cuts?
