Unemployed Man Tails Tax Cut PR Tour

| July 2003

As Bush's economic team tours Minnesota and Wisconsin this week promoting the economic benefits of the recent tax cuts, John Andrew, a recently 'downsized' hi-tech employee from Minneapolis, is spreading the truth in their wake: 'this economy stinks, and Bush's tax cuts are making it worse.' On his new web site, JobForJohn.com (temporarily at, he notes that 8,500 jobs are being lost each day. John departed from the Minnesota State Capitol at noon Monday and headed for Milwaukee, where he'll give chase to Treasury Secretary John Snow and Commerce Secretary Don Evans as they embark on a two-day five-city bus trip and 'give their PR tour a dose of reality.' Commenting on the fact that 'Bush spends a lot of time lately talking about our security from Saddam Hussein,' the web site features a picture of John's cute son pointing out from the screen, Uncle Sam-style, over the caption: 'Mr. Bush, my kids will be safe when their family has health insurance.'
