Outrage of the day I. No doubt we'll hear from conservatives in the next day or two as to how the New York Times' David Firestone got it wrong this morning. No doubt it will have something to do with how little low-income working families pay in taxes in the first place.

But can we nevertheless pause for a moment of outrage over this hidden gem in George W. Bush's wildly irresponsible tax cut? Because the fact remains that virtually the only Americans who won't be getting a $400 rebate are poor people who work.
