Lincoln may give tax cut compromise
LITTLE ROCK | Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln says she may propose extending the Bush-era tax cuts to wealthier Americans, as well as the middle-class tax cuts that President Obama and Democratic leaders in Washington want to maintain.
Mrs. Lincoln said Monday that she’s researching to determine whether a compromise is possible on the tax cut proposals. Mrs. Lincoln last week said she may support including those who make as much as $1 million a year in the cuts. Mrs. Lincoln, a Democrat, is in a tough race for re-election against Republican U.S.Rep. John Boozman.
Mr. Obama and Democratic leaders have said that after the November elections, they want to extend tax cuts for individuals making less $200,000 and married couples making less than $250,000.
Giuliani: Democrats stoke ethnic rift
WESTMINSTER | Rudolph W. Giuliani said a California congresswoman’s remarks about a Vietnamese trying to unseat her reflect the Democrats’ push to pit people against each other and a mindset of “ethnic warfare.”
The former New York City mayor made the comments Monday in Southern California while campaigning for Republican Van Tran, who is running against Democratic incumbent Loretta Sanchez for California’s 47th Congressional District.
Ms. Sanchez’s remarks about Vietnamese last month in a television interview have stoked criticism in the ethnically diverse district she has represented for 14 years.
A message left with the Sanchez campaign was not immediately returned Monday.
