Our Candidate: Why We Love George

George W. Bush is more than the perfect puppet Reagan was; he's truly one of us. We don't have to convince him of the benefits of helping out the rich and powerful — he's known them all his life. Billionaires bought him the education his brains couldn't — Andover, Yale, Harvard — then bailed out his failed business ventures, and paid his way into politics. As a result, George is as dedicated to realising our vision for America as we are!

Tax Cuts, the Deficit and Destroying Public Services

We love George's tax cuts! They mean trillions for us and tidbits for everyone else. Better still, they've left Americans with a crippling debt that their children will be paying back to us (guess who loaned Bush the money for a tax cut?!) for years to come while the Government slashes social security, education and health care to avoid going bankrupt.

Investment: $200 million to Bush's 2000 election campaign
Return: $1.1 trillion in tax cuts
Percent Return: 550,000%

Medicare and Pharmaceuticals

The health of Americans is important to us. In fact, it's worth about $1.6 trillion a year! And now George is helping us make even more money from this booming business. He's protecting our profits by barring cheaper drugs from abroad, while his new Medicare bill guarantees that the government can't negotiate bulk drug prices from our companies. Read more...

Investment: $44 million in Drug Company donations to Republicans since 2000
Return: $139 billion in additional Drug Company profits over 8 years
Percent Return: 315,900%

Defense Contracting

Most Presidents keep our Defense Contractors happy, but George is special. He's increased the defence budget, turned over lucrative government services to our companies and topped it all by destroying Iraq with our most expensive bombs and then paying us to re-build it! So while America gets more wars, less money for social programs, families and the future, we get $250 billion! Read more...

Investment: $23.5 million in Defense Contractors' donations since 2000 to Republicans
Return: Approximately $251 billion
Percent Return: 1,068,000%


George is an oil man, Cheney is an oil man. We're all oil men! From Kyoto to Iraq, George has ensured that whether it's global warming or global peace, our profits come first. He even let us write his new energy bill and give ourselves $30 billion of your money in new subsidies. Read more...

Investment: $108 million from Oil Companies since 2000 to Republicans
Return: $30 billion
Percent Return: 27,778%

Workers' Overtime Coverage

Overtime pay may keep millions of families afloat, but it sure costs us a lot of money! That's why George has fought the whining public and the Congress to remove 8 million workers' right to overtime pay, potentially saving us $1.9billion a year, forever! Read more...

Investment: $6 million from Business Associations since 2000 to Republicans
Return: $1.9 billion per year forever
Percent Return: 31,667% per year

Media Consolidation

George knows the value of having media that'll make him look good, and we know the value of controlling what you think (and of making $billions doing it). Again, George has stood alone against a public outcry, a bi-partisan Congress and the foundations of America's democracy to ensure that our mega-media corporations can get even bigger.

When it comes to media corporations, bigger is better. Bigger means more profits, more chances to cut jobs and more control over what Americans see, hear and think. And so what if it undermines our democracy? That’s half the point. Twenty years ago, 50 of our companies controlled America’s media. Now just 5 do, and counting. Our companies have combined revenues of over $100bn and our top executives are personally worth nearly $10 billion each.

The President understands our interests and has fought hard for them. Last year, millions of Americans – both liberals and conservatives — and bi-partisan majorities in both houses of Congress opposed the “independent” Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) new rules governing media ownership allowing our mega-corporations to become even bigger. They said they were against the public interest. Public outcry, bi-partisan Congress, public interest? That didn’t bother our President. He fought our corner alone, publicly defending the FCC ruling and threatening to veto any legislation Congress passed. When the stubborn Congress stood its ground our man cleverly bundled the FCC rules into a massive spending bill full of pork for the Congressmen and money for “help-the-poor” things like HIV/AIDS in Africa. It passed.

But that’s not all George has done. He’s also reorganized antitrust procedures to give the Justice Department — which, as part of the executive branch, he controls — sole oversight of our mass-media mergers, which it used to share with the independent Federal Trade Commission.

The President fights for our interests because they’re his interests too. We don’t need to give him money (though, of course, we’ve given him a bit: about $3m for the 2000 election ) we just give him the world’s biggest PR machine. For example, Fox News — which is part of (Billionaire) Rupert Murdoch’s mega-media firm NewsCorp — is carefully packed with Republican insiders, like anchor Tony Snow and pundits Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, to give a “Fair and Balanced” view of the President. Its Founder and President, Roger Ailes, was Bush Senior’s chief media consultant. Why else do you think it has an 8:1 ratio of Republican to Democrat guests on its political shows? It’s simple. We make George and his policies — like the Iraq War — look as good as possible. He makes sure we can make as much money possible and control what the American people think of us and our President.

Investment: $25.7 million from media corps to Republicans since 2000
Return: Control over what every American thinks and buys — priceless


Once, governments fought to protect your health and preserve the environment for your children. Maybe they just didn't appreciate how much money could be made? But George does. He's undone decades of terrible, anti-Billionaire policies and fought hard for our rights to make billions polluting the air, endangering health and wrecking the natural world. Read more...

Iraq War

For years our "Bomb the Arabs and Steal Their Oil!" bumper sticker has gone unheeded. That is, until George came along. The Middle East has been a constant irritation to us Billionaires for decades. Finally we've gone in and taken control. WMD, human rights, whatever. We've got the oil and that means serious money. Dead US soldiers, dead Iraqis, enraged Muslim world, increased terrorist threats? As long as our profit margins are healthy, we'll make it through. Read more...
