Bush Attacks Gore's Economic Plan

NPR's Peter Kenyon reports that presidential candidate George W. Bush attacked his rival's economic plan during a campaign stop in Michigan yesterday. Bush cast Vice-President Al Gore as an excessive spender who wants to use the federal surplus to expand government. Bush touted his own tax-cut proposal, saying it would help stem future economic down turns by giving the earners and creators of wealth more money. (3:28).
