Dole's Proposed Tax Cut

August 06, 1996

Republican Presidential Hopeful Bob Dole yesterday unveiled a giant tax cut proposal he hopes will attract middle class voters to his campaign. Critics quickly charged that the 548 billion dollars in tax cuts over six years will balloon the federal deficit, a move inconsistent for a leader who has promised to balance the federal budget. But Dole was armed and ready to answer the charges.
