In his State of the Union address, President Bush talked about his economic revival plan that will "lift this nation out of hard times." His plan included new tax breaks for first-time home buyers, an increased personal exemption for children, lower paycheck tax withholding levels, a reduction in the capital gains tax and many other incentives for businesses and individuals. The plan was met with immediate skepticism from Democrats who said his plan had little new in it. They proposed alternatives that generally called for larger middle-income tax cuts.
The Evening Sun would like to know if you think President Bush's plan will jump-start the economy or worsen the budget deficit. Do you feel his proposals have enough in them to provide relief for families and middle income people?
