This is viewer supported news

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.

Guest:

ROBERT MCINTYRE, Director of Citizens for Tax justice, a non- partisan research and advocacy group that fights for progressive tax reform at the federal, state and local levels. AND GUEST:

STEPHEN MOORE, Director of fiscal policy studies at the Cato Institute, a Washington,DC-based free market think tank. Moore is a contributing editor to the National Review and was chief architect of Representative Dick Armey’s flat tax proposal.
