TRIFECTA MYSTERY SOLVED? Dana Milbank at the Washington Post thinks so.
There is still no trace of Bush making such a caveat; in fact, shortly after taking office, he declared that “we can proceed with tax relief without fear of budget deficits, even if the economy softens.” On the other hand, Bush can fairly argue that his top economic adviser, Lawrence B. Lindsey, endorsed the caveats during the campaign. When Kessler asked back then about Gore’s three exceptions, Lindsey said the same caveats would apply for Bush.
Me, I’m still not convinced, and this is a big deal.
(There — how’d I do?)
