STATEMENT BY JOE LOCKHART
NATIONAL PRESS SECRETARY
"Yes," Jack Kemp responding to Sam Donaldson’s question, "Will you please submit, you and Senator Dole, your plan for a $548 billion tax cut to the CBO so they can run the numbers and tell the American people whether, in fact, you have a chance of making it ... Will you do it?" (ABC’s This Week with David Brinkley, 10/13/96)
We’re glad that Jack Kemp agreed, at last, to provide the necessary details on Bob Dole’s risky, $548 billion economic plan so that Majority Leader Trent Lott or Speaker Newt Gingrich can submit the Dole economic plan to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) before the election for an independent analysis of its impact on the economy.
If Bob Dole really "trusts the people" he should follow Ronald Reagan’s lead and "trust, but verify."
