    the only thing these untargeted tax cuts do is raise prices somewhere.  When the Bush tax cuts happened, health insurance costs went up.  Our school property taxes went up too.  The reason given was that it was because health insurance costs for the teachers were going up.

    So, in other words, the health insurance company vultures looked around and said, "Wow!  A lot of people have more money in their pockets.  Let's get that money transferred to our pockets."

    Now, if there was some way to roll back the health insurance rate increases from the last ten years, then maybe we could end the Bush tax cuts.
