BILLINGS — Former President George. W. Bush says tax cuts for those with money to invest in businesses are the best way to grow the economy.
Bush spoke Friday night at a fundraiser in Billings for a nonprofit Christian ministry called Provision International that aids people around the world.
The Billings Gazette reports Bush spoke for about half an hour and then took questions from members of Provision International. Organizers say about 1,200 people attended with most paying $200. Those who donated $1,000 got a private reception and photo with the former president.
Bush says he doesn't plan on becoming involved in the partisan debate leading up to this year's presidential election. He says he's no longer in politics and is trying to get out of what he calls "the swamp."
