Statement on Latest Bush Tax Cuts

May 23, 2003

This new round of tax cuts is just another reminder that not only are Republicans irresponsible with taxpayer money, they're irresponsible with the truth of what they have done.

The President's latest reckless tax cuts should come with a warning label like that on a rearview mirror: 'CAUTION - THE SIZE OF THIS TAX CUT IS MUCH LARGER THAN IT APPEARS.'

The gimmicks and book-keeping contortions contained in this bill are breathtaking in their scope and dishonesty.

This President and the Republicans in Congress continue to redirect scarce resources to the top rungs of the economic ladder and away from the urgent needs of our citizens - from health care and prescription drugs, to better schools and assistance for the unemployed.
