Bush raised my Taxes, Again!

From CNN:

I am an educator, On occasion, we need to purchase supplies on your own to support the classroom. The expenditures are necessary to provide for timely instruction and to keep the students engaged. The federal tax return provides for a modest reimbursement up to $250 for these expenses. Not any more:
a $250 federal tax deduction for teachers that helped defray out-of-pocket spending expired this year.
Keep in mind, I have received no raise in the last three years due to tight state and local budgets. Health insurance costs are taking a bigger bite out of our paycheck, and now my taxes are going up. Welcome to the Bush economy.
