The Conservative Leadership Race Matters

Back to article »

  • Bill,
    You (and the conservative party) must come to grips with the debt that you cursorily mention in your final item. Yet cutting taxes is mentioned very early in your article leaving the impression which one you favor.
    Cutting taxes favor the highest wage earners but reducing government revenues will impact those at the lower levels that require more government support.
    Does it not seem reasonable to return to a more progressive personal income tax regime where there is a chance for balanced budgets that do not rest on the backs of lower-wage earners?
