Dems and Tax Cuts

I was on Fox with a Democrat named Rich Masters yesterday, and he said a turning point for Kerry in Iowa was when he re-tooled his stump speech to put greater emphasis on his tax message and its contrast to Dean’s call for a total repeal of the Bush tax cut. I hadn’t heard that before. The Wall Street Journal today also points out that Kerry hit Dean very hard on this issue in mailings. Turns out that tax cuts have some appeal even among liberal voters in Iowa.
