NPR White House correspondent Mara Liasson reports today's veto by President Clinton of the $792 billion tax cut passed by Congress. Mr. Clinton said the tax cut would hurt the economy, but suggested he would consider a smaller cut. The veto was expected, but Republicans, sensing a potent campaign issue, blasted the President's decision.
