Tax Relief

Post placeholder image

Can anyone tell me why Congress is still “seriously” considering President Bush’s tax relief plan? Considering that the real cost of this war is not yet know, I think it’s irresponsible for any politician to vote for such a plan. Thankfully, the Senate (unlike the House) voted to cut the tax plan by $350 Billion. Wondering, how are we going to pay for this war? I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to be a lot more than the $70billion proposed by the President. As Senator John Breaux (D-La) indicated, “with a projected deficit of $300 billion and the unknown costs of war and reconstruction in Iraq, it is ‘not good policy’ to embark on a major new round of tax-cutting.”
