MCCAIN-ECONOMY
(2007-07-23)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - There's a new campaign promise from John
McCain: no more pork.
The Republican presidential candidate is to spell out his views
on the economy tonight in a speech to the Economic Club of
Southwest Michigan.
His campaign has already put out some excerpts. And in them,
McCain declares he'll veto every pork-barrel bill Congress sends
him. He says if Congress kept sending them, he'd use the "bully
pulpit" of the presidency to, quote, "make the people who are
wasting your money famous."
McCain also vows to eliminate a stealth tax that's ensnaring
more and more families. Called the alternative minimum tax, it was
designed to keep the rich from dodging taxes, but because of
bracket creep, it's starting to hit middle-income taxpayers.
