Jesse Helms: Bush Tax changes “stink on ice”

Burried in the last bit of a Washington Post story is an interesting quote from Jesse Helms (via tapped.)

Look Who’s Talking
“I would not have voted for [President Bush’s] tax cut, based on what I know. . . . There is no doubt that the people at the top who need a tax break the least will get the most benefit. . . . Too often presidents do things that don’t end up helping the people they should be helping, and their staffs won’t tell them their actions stink on ice.”
— Former senator Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), in a recent interview with Business North Carolina magazine.
