Governor George W. Bush And Vice President Al Gore

1579 words - 6 pages

Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore Two of the most intellectual, political experts, Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore, are running for the highest position in America. They are in a tight race and it is hard to call who should be the next president of the United States of America. During the past three debates, they have discussed many issues like tax reform, abortion, education, and more. I think the best man for this job is Governor George W. Bush because he is the type of person who can work together with the Republicans and the Democrats to strengthen the nation's economy and I believe he has the right attitude and is moving in the right direction on issues such as tax reform, abortion, and education. One of the biggest subjects in the American society is the issue of tax reform. It is an issue that the American people have been waiting to discuss for many years. Now they have the opportunity to talk about it with Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore. A decision is reached by Gore that the surplus should not return to taxpayers. Instead he wants to use the surplus to balance the national debt, protect Medicare, and look after Social Security. Gore does not want to relieve taxes for everybody. He desires to cut taxes only for the middle-class families; however, Governor Bush on the other hand, believes that people who have paid their bills ought to have a portion of the share returned back to them. Governor Bush wants to cut taxes not only for the middle-class families but for everyone. During the first debate, Bush said that if he becomes the President of the United States, he will take fifty percent of the surplus and devote it to Social Security, twenty five percent to important projects, and another twenty five percent to taxpayers. This is roughly about $1.3 trillion to be given back to taxpayers. Most taxpayers including myself are very excited to have a leader who is willing to return the extra money back to us. According to Vice President Gore, he said that "he will cut taxes for middle-class families"( qtd. Thomma and Enda). I think this is the wrong approach because it is not fair for the wealthy people. I feel that people who pay taxes ought to get tax relief. There should not be a law that prohibits the rich people from having their taxes reduced. In my opinion, I truly believe that many of the wealthy people create jobs for the citizens and the residents of the United States. I feel that without them the economy would not fare as well as it should have been. One thing that comes to mind when people think of the young Americans, we think about abortion. Abortion is a major issue in our society today and some women are making the wrong choices when they become pregnant. Governor Bush does not support abortion and he wants America to stay away from it. He believes that every child, born and unborn, ought to be protected in law and welcome into life; but nevertheless, his...
