LIEBERMAN: This is an important difference between us. We’re focusing our tax cuts on the middle class, in the areas where they tell us they need it. One of those many tax credits for the middle class that Dick just referred to, includes a $500 tax credit for stay-at-home moms, just as a way of saying we understand that you are performing a service for our society, we want you to have that tax credit.
LIEBERMAN: The number of 50 million Americans not benefiting from our tax cut program is absolutely wrong. It’s an estimate done on an earlier form of our tax cut program, and it’s just plain wrong. And, secondly, although Governor Bush says that his tax cut program, large as it is, gives a tax cut to everybody, earlier this week, the Joint Committee on Taxation-a nonpartisan group in Congress-has said that 27 million Americans don’t get what the governor said they would in their tax cut program.
CHENEY: You have to be a CPA to understand [the Gore-Lieberman tax plan and who benefits from it]. The fact of the matter is that the plan is so complex that an ordinary American’s never going to be able to figure out what they even qualify for.
