Notes: George W. Bush unveiled his tax-cut plan last week. It calls for a $1.6 trillion cut. Under the plan both middle-income and wealthy taxpayers would receive tax reductions. It relies on the projected budget surplus of $5.6 trillion over the next ten years. Democrats didn't give specific numbers for their tax-cut, but said it would be in the $800 billion range (up from $500 billion). The plan is directed to middle- and low- income taxpayers. Meanwhile, Congressional Republican leaders called for cuts greater than the president's plan. We hope the surplus projections pan out. 02.11.01
