Would you be willing to give up future tax cuts to reduce the national deficit?
Asked at Lawrence High School on January 31, 2004
“I would say absolutely. I feel we must pay for what we want. If we want a good government and services, we should be willing to pay for that.”
“Yes, I would be willing to. Certain programs need funding that are not getting it.”
“Yes. The longer you don’t pay off money, the more it costs because of interest. Better to pay it off sooner than later.”
“I’d be willing for the wealthy people who got the tax cut to give it up.”
