Was Kerry so ashamed of his wife that all he mentioned was her money, and then went on to talk about his mother? I don't know about any of you, but if I had done that, my wife would kill me. After all she is supposed to be the next First Lady, wouldn't you talk about your wife in a situation like that?

I'm pretty sure Mrs. Kerry has a more stable and secure mental frame than to need praise from her husband during a debate.

That was weird. He passed right by his wife and used his time to talk about his mother. He was supposed to be sharing what he's learned from the women in his life...

I see a big difference between Bush and Kerry here. It doesn't seem Kerry loves his wife beyond her money. While Bush talked about meeting his wife and what he did in fact learn from her.

Reminds me of Bill and Hillary. It is a marriage of convince not of love. It is convenient for Kerry because it affords him to do things he could do on his govt job.

Did any one notice how Kerry also stated how he would only tax those above the 200K mark? Funny thing is, he makes under 200K per year as a Senator. I guess he wants people to be taxed as long as it isn't him.

You really have no idea do you. Kerry was not "poor" by any means prior to his marriage, I think he had his $10million Becon Street home and his $29 million mansion on Nantucket before his "marriage of convienence". Then provoke Clinton, you're blame card for EVERYTHING. Why did I fail English? Clinton. Plague? Clinton. The pimple on my left nut? Yep, that was Clinton's fault too Rolling Eyes You'd think after 4 years, you'd be able to get over it.

Umm, Kerry makes a lot more then the $200k you so profess.

And is your stance that removing the tax cut and bringing the tax on the top 2% of the population to 2000 levels is bad? Please explain your position and tell me why somebody making $1million a year should recieve an extra $75,000 a year during a time of war?

You are so off, B.

1) What woman has influenced you most in your life? Your wife, or your mother? I thought most people were trained up by their parents, not their wives, so, therefore, a parent would have the longer stronger influence... Confused At least, that is true of me, and true for my kids so far (of course, only one is married...)

2) Bill and Hillary love each other. In spite of their hard times. And if you ever saw them prior to the Monica fiasco, they would act like lovebirds, really in to each other. You could tell they had a deep physical love by their behavior.

3) Wouldn't Kerry and his wife be filing jointly? Do you have evidence that they file married filing separately? Her fortune would put them in the highest tax bracket, I'm guessing...

Actually, they do file seperately, partially to hide Heinz's money from the press. If they filed jointly, her taxes would be fair game.

I agree with your post, but I just wanted to inform you on the facts.

Teresa Heinz Kerry Releases 2003 Income Tax Information
For Immediate Release

Washington, DC - Mrs. Teresa Heinz Kerry announced today that she has received an extension for filing her 2003 federal income tax return and is releasing the following personal tax information.

Mrs. Heinz Kerry paid approximately $750,000 towards her 2003 federal, state and local income tax liability at the time of the extension filing. This represents approximately 32 percent of her gross taxable income. She paid $587,000 in estimated federal income taxes for 2003, and $162,777 in estimated state and local income taxes. In addition, in April she paid $280,000 towards expected additional 2003 and 2004 federal tax liability.

Based upon the information received to date concerning her investments, her advisers estimate that in 2003, Mrs. Heinz Kerry had gross taxable income of approximately $2,338,000, consisting primarily of dividends and interest, and tax exempt interest income of approximately $2,777,000 from state, municipal and other public entity bonds.

In 2003, Mrs. Heinz Kerry was responsible for over $4.6 million distributed as charitable contributions, primarily through charitable grants by the Heinz Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation Mrs. Heinz Kerry established with her late husband, Senator John Heinz, and later significantly expanded after his death in 1991 through her creation of the Teresa and H. John Heinz III Fund within that Foundation. The Heinz Family Foundation is principally funded by a charitable lead trust, the Teresa & H. John Heinz III Charitable Trust, established as a result of estate planning decisions made by Senator John Heinz and Mrs. Heinz Kerry before his death.

The Heinz Family Foundation is separate from the Howard Heinz Endowment, of which she is Chairman, and the Vira I. Heinz Endowment, of which she is a board member, both of which were established by earlier generations of the Heinz family and make significant annual charitable grants. None of these entities, nor Mrs. Heinz Kerry, nor any member of her family, has any managerial or other role with the H. J. Heinz Company or its company-directed foundation.

Mrs. Heinz Kerry stated that she will make available the first two pages of the Form 1040 for 2003 once it is prepared and filed in October. Mrs. Heinz Kerry files a separate tax return from her husband, Senator John Kerry.

"While I am not a candidate for any public office, a great deal of my financial information has been disclosed for many years on my husband's Senate Ethics Disclosure and now that he is a presidential candidate, with the Office of Government Ethics," she said.

"Today I am making additional public disclosures by releasing my personal tax information. I will make public my 1040 form when my personal tax returns are completed later this year. John and I believe this strikes a balance between my family's privacy and the media's requests for more financial information."

In 2000, then-candidate George Bush filed an extension for his 1999 taxes, in the spring he released some tax information and then released his 1040 Form after he filed his taxes in October 2000.
