The Democratic primaries are shaping the policy debate surrounding the upcoming presidential election. When it comes to tax policy, all the candidates seemed unified in their determination to repeal some, if not all, of President Bush's tax cuts. These efforts to take resources away from taxpayers in favor of a larger federal budget are often grounded in class warfare or concerns over deficit spending. However, before abandoning the tax cuts, it may be wise to review the current state of the economy. Recent economic trends suggest that Bush was right to cut taxes; in fact, economic growth could be bolstered by making these cuts permanent.
