Bill Clinton's corporate welfare hypocrisy

Bill Clinton's corporate welfare hypocrisy

BY Scott A. Hodge

Over the last two years, Bill Clinton has repeatedly rejected meaningful tax relief for hard-working Americans on the excuse that tax cuts might in some way favor the "rich." When he recently vetoed Congress' "marriage penalty" tax relief bill, Clinton charged it was "the first installment of a fiscally reckless tax strategy." White House spokesman Joe Lockhart went even further in charging that the tax bill would disproportionately go to the wealthiest Americans.
