If you're in the middle class, a vote FOR Bush is a vote AGAINST yourself.

Paul Krugman compares the healthcare proposals of John Kerry and George Bush -- and finds that there's really no comparison.

The difference couldn't be starker. Mr. Kerry offers a health care plan that would extend coverage to most of those now uninsured, paid for by rolling back tax cuts for those with incomes over $200,000. President Bush offers a tax credit that would extend coverage to fewer than 5 percent of the uninsured, plus a new tax break for the affluent that would actually increase the number of uninsured. As I said last week, I don't see how Mr. Bush can win this debate. 

Just one more example of Bush putting the screws to average citizens -- while offering yet another tax break for those "Pioneers" who raised cash for his campaign war chest.
