plan to cut taxes IS percent across the board.
Kemp said the economy was growing a feeble
2.5 percent a year under Clinton. “Bob Dole and
I believe we can do a lot better.”
Gore, in turn, said repeatedly that Dole and
Kemp were offering a “risky $550 billion tax
scheme” that would “blow a hole in the deficit

football stories, I won’t tell any of my warm and
humorous stories about chlorofluorocarbon
“It’s a deal,” Kemp said.
