Congress Will Present Tax Cut In Sections

The obscure millions of a great empire have much less to dread from the cruelty than from the avarice of their masters, and their humble happiness is principally affected by the grievance of excessive taxes (Edward Gibbon, The Rise & Fall of the Roman Empire Vol. II,).

Bypassing the Washington press corps, President Bush traveled to Pennsylvania today, launching a five-state tour to take his tax-cut proposal directly to the people.

--After the President shocked critics with the power and substance of his first speech to Congress, Democrats began a furious effort to sabotage his tax cut plan.

--Republican leaders have broken the tax cut into pieces and will propel each section through the House, one piece at a time, a strategy naysayers will find difficult to overcome.

--The Tax Rate Reduction Plan will be the first component. Now five rate brackets: 15, 28, 31, 36 and 39.6 percent, will be reduced to four: 10, 15, 25, and 33 percent.

--The Rate Reduction Bill should be voted out of the House Ways & Means Committee this week, then go to the full House for a vote next week.

Please Join Us in Agreeing Prayer:

--Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving STRENGTH & FAVOR to George Bush. Cause his "Tax Rate Reduction Plan" to be overwhelmingly embraced by the American People. STOP the mouths of the critics (1 Sam 2:26; Est 2:15b; Ps 5:12; 44:1-4).

--May it sail through the House, with larger than expected support. May it be implemented in time to make a difference in our nation's faltering economy. In Jesus' Name. Amen (1 Sam 8:11-13; Ps 35:26-27; Pr 11:27).
