ABSTRACT
This article discusses the tax cuts that United States President George W. Bush has put into law and the response by Democratic candidates such as Howard Dean. Maybe advocating total repeal of the tax cuts really is political suicide. That's a staggering sum of money and the central reason why all the Democrats running for president think at least some of the tax cuts should go. While Dean and Richard Gephardt want to roll back all of them (more on Gephardt in a minute), Kerry, Wesley Clark, John Edwards, and Joe Lieberman argue for repealing only those tax cuts that target the very wealthy--chiefly, reductions in the capital-gains tax, the estate tax, income-tax rates for the very wealthy, and various corporate income taxes.
