Bush and taxes

Crooks and Liars points to one of the more ridiculous arguments coming out of this administration: We can't raise taxes on the rich because they will simply not pay them.
If they’re going to say, oh, we’re only going to tax the rich people, but most people in America understand that the rich people hire good accountants and figure out how not to necessarily pay all the taxes and the middle class gets stuck.

Really? That is your argument for not taxing the rich?

Sigh.

Is this a new quote? Because I remember him saying something similar a while back....

I remember it too from a couple years back, but he said it again just recently in an interview on Faux.
