"You're all lazy bums," sez the Bush Treasury...

Much is being made over Treasury's cribbing of Republican campaign rhetoric in their supposed-to-be-non-partisan analysis (though it could be that the folks are just following the administration example to be as lazy as possible, much like the CPA's cribbing of the Brooking's Institution website), but you wonder whom gave them the right to judge which of us out there is "hardworking". Well, they've come up with a formula to determine if you're hard working or not -- Taxable income exceeding $200,000 a year. Now we all know. If we're not making $200K, we're lazy bums undeserving of anything from the administration.

It looks like Dick Cheney isn't quite working hard enough in his capacity as VP. Good thing he has his stock holdings, and his wife to pick up the slack.
