Wednesday, August 2, 2000

What an exciting night! We've just nominated the next Vice President of the United States.
And, just in case you forgot, the current Vice President voted to raise taxes on seniors' retirement income.
He voted to raise gas taxes.
He voted to make the death tax retroactive. That's right, he voted to reach back to take more money from those who had already died. But even worse, he proudly calls this the best vote he has ever cast. Is it any wonder Americans don't want this Vice President to be their next President?
Meanwhile, the Republican Congress has delivered on our commitment to improve education by restoring local control, requiring accountability … and giving parents the right to determine their own children's future.
We have begun to repair our defense capabilities…. and protect our allies from missile attacks from rogue nations.
And on taxes, we have proposed changes to the tax code that are simply fair for the American people.
The Democrat leaders say NO to these changes.
So let me ask you…
Do you want to end the tax on marriage?
Do you want to end the death tax?
Do you want to end the 100-year-old Spanish-American War telephone tax?
Then send us a Vice President who will work with George W. Bush to cut taxes, not raise them … who will restore parental control to education, instead of Washington interference … who will proudly renew America's promise and renew America's pride.
Our new century offers us the opportunity in partnership with George W. Bush to save Medicare and to provide needy seniors with prescription drugs… to reduce tax rates for all Americans… to protect Social Security for the old and the young… and to make our schools the best in the world.
We need new leadership and new policies for our new economy and our new millennium.
Governor George Bush is the man for the job, along with his partner, and our next Vice President, Dick Cheney!
