If Kerry won't tell us now what his plans are then Bush should try and get it out of him during the debates. If Bush can get Kerry to admit that he plans to raise taxes on middle class as well the "over $30,000" group then Kerry can be legitimately labeled as a "tax and spend" democrat and thereby torpedo his presidential dreams.

al Kerry's economic plan:

1. Repeal all of GW's tax plan.

2. Tax the hell out any family making $100,000 per year.

3. Double the SS withholding of anyone making $50,000 and over per year to eliminate any SS withholding from those who make less than $50,000. The rats call it payroll taxe reduction.

4. As per Je$$e HiJack$on's wet dream impose a 10% tax on all Iras, 401ks, Keoughs and other retirement savings plan.
Je$$e's leeches and other perverted groups of the Lunatic Left will get most of this to pay for their votes in 2004.

5. Pull our troops out of Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas and slash the military spending to Jimmy Carter levels.

6. Fire Greenspan and let the interest rate copy Carter's.

If I posted # 7, 8, 9 and 10 everyone would become really depressed.

... If you start to put out proposals now, they would be vigorously attacked and they would in effect become tainted so they couldn't be used."

Yea, lets just vote him into office and take a "wait and see" approach.

"A top economic advisor to Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry said the public won't hear Kerry's financial plans until after he's elected - if he's elected."

I know it's a little much to ask, but let's apply some logic to this statement.
What would be the purpose in voting for Kerry, if one does not know what he proposes to do if elected?

A top economic advisor to Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry said the public won't hear Kerry's financial plans until after he's elected - if he's elected.

In the Aug. 2 cover story of "Business Week," former Clinton administration treasury secretary Robert Rubin said, "I don't think you can make proposals to try to dig out of this hole until you've gotten elected ... If you start to put out proposals now, they would be vigorously attacked and they would in effect become tainted so they couldn't be used."

WOW --- Now THIS is a great new campaign strategy that fits in GREAT with sKerry's record!

'We can't put out any proposals because if we did we wouldn't be able to use them because people would discover how dumb they are. We'll just have to not put out any proposals at all so we can get elected and then we'll start with a clean slate!

All week, I've been looking for solid proposals from the Demodogs as solutions to the "problems" they claim we have. Rubin just revealed exactly why NONE was proposed.

They really think the American electorate will fall for this?

Orwellian --- this campaign is so Orwellian that I am going to have to reread 1984.

That's a bunch of BS. Bush announced his economic plan during the campaign, won the election, and implemented it just fine.

Yes there are TWO AMERICA'S. The America that these extremely wealthy leftest elitists live in and the America that those of us who have to earn a living live in.

God forbid that Robert Rubin should have to debate a policy before it is implemented. Just impose it on the peons for their own good.

What a disgusting elitist jerk.

Yup. If Rubin doesn't get fried, and the sKerry campaign dirtied by association, for the call he made on behalf of ENRON in an attempt to keep their stock pumped up, I'll be real surprised. Nader will blast this guy's association with sKerry. I know several libs here who are really on the edge of whether to vote sKerry or not, and this will truly put them over the edge.

If sKerry starts losing a fair number of these marginal voters to Nader, that could really snowball and the leftists who really wanted Dean could start flocking over to him. Internationalist elitist Rubin does NOT help sKerry with his association in that campaign. Wide dissemination that he is the leading economic head for sKerry could really start blowing it away, and Business Week is wide dissemination.

Well, isn't that convenient.

He's refused to hear White House press briefings because he's got his OWN
intelligence sources. I think we should know who they are.

And now he has an economic plan but won't tell us until after the election?

I've never heard anything so ridiculous in my entire life.

So, the rocket scientists at Kerry Campaign Headquarters are okay with the defining of Kerry's policy as "I'm going to raise your taxes, and I'm not Bush!"

Ooookay, fine by me.

If Kerry can't explain how to make his numbers add up, it means that when his advisors finally "do the math," the middle class is screwed. He needs to present a plan and let the people decide. If he can't present a plan, then assume he's going to raise your taxes. If he presents a plan and it doesn't add up, he's going to raise your taxes. If his plan says he's going to raise your taxes and it doesn't add up, he's going to raise your taxes more than he admits in his plan.

This has to get a replay!

You forgot the items which EXEMPT from any significant taxes nearly all of the assets of the EXTREMELY WEALTHY such as Terrayzza and Soros due to the use of their tax dodge foundations and other cute tricks - those tricks that you really need many millions of dollars to employ. sKerry is certainly not going to do anything to discontinue those.

The media, if it was legitimate, would hammer on this question fo rthe next three months.

Candidates can not be allowed to be this brazen about riding into office behind a cloud of deception.

So does this mean that when sKerry sez, "I have a plan..." that he's really saying, "My mind is blank and I don't have a clue?" Geeze who'd a thunk it?

She's doing very well. She just got back from "choir camp" where she played Esther, one of the leads, in a musical they put together "Malice in the Palace". Very cute, and not only she, but all of the children, swelled my heart with pride so much that it squeezed water out of my eyes for most of the performance.

I'll be corresponding further about things to interested parties soon.

Clinton and Kerry imposed the largest tax increase on middle class families

Precisely! This is Kerrynomics for a "compassionate" 21st century America of "values." Kerry pretends he can reduce the deficit and increase government spending at the same time. As far as the Demon-rats are concerned, the paycheck-to-paycheck middle class are "the wealthy" and must have their backs and their spirits beaten into submission. Why don't they just come out of the closet as full-fledged progressives and socialists, and throw in reparations for slavery to spice things up a notch?! Socialism is the equal distribution of POVERTY, and postmodern liberalism, the equal distribution of IGNORANCE, intellectual dishonesty and moral bankruptcy. We must then realize and accept that "some animals are more equal than others."

It's not really YOUR money, you realize that, don't you? Now don't make things more difficult than they have to be!
