Pres. Bush Warns of High Taxes in Democrat Takeover
In Sarasota, FL, President George W
Bush continued campaigning for Republican Party candidates ahead
of tight Congressional race 2006. The president said Republicans
must win in order to maintain low taxes and foster small business
To prove his point the president made is remarks at Gyrocam Systems
LLC, a small business that manufactures and services advanced airborne
daytime, nighttime, and heat-sensing surveillance equipment.
President Bush told employees at Gyrocam Systems that is was his low
tax policies that enabled the small business to grow and hire new
"One of the reasons why we're
adding jobs in this country of ours is
because our small business sector is flourishing," the president said.

"And in order to make sure that companies such as this little company
continue to expand you got to keep taxes low. If we run up taxes it's
going to make it harder for the small businesses to expand," President
For the Congressional race, which will be determined by a nationwide
vote 7 November 2006, President Bush said "if the Democrats take
control of the Congress they'll raise taxes by letting the tax cuts
expire," which then in turn soaks the small businesses responsible for
so much of the economic growth experienced in the past three years.
President Bush met with Iraq war veterans who now work for Gyrocam
Systems. "They're bringing their expertise off the battlefield to help
this company design a product which will work."
With Republicans in control of Congress after November, the president
said he would keep taxes low, offer less regulation, "and our economy
will remain strong. If we run up taxes it will falter."
Some polls show Democrats favored to take a majority of seats on
election day, but President Bush waved off the threat during a meeting
with NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer. "I've seen it before
where people start measuring the drapes in their new offices before the
vote has been counted -- in other words, they're taking the people's
vote for granted," President Bush said.
He again emphasized how low-taxes had boosted the economy to new record
highs, put more people back to work than at anytime in the history of
the United States and any worry over the election would be purely
"fascination" by "pundits and people who are giving their opinions."
"I see enthusiasm amongst Republicans, I see candidates who are saying,
vote for me, I will work to make sure America doesn't get attacked
again. And I'm seeing candidates saying, I understand that if we run up
your taxes like the Democrats do, it's going to hurt this economy, and
so we'll keep your taxes low," President Bush said.
