Chabot exhorts Hastert to stick to his tax-cutting guns

Enquirer Washington Bureau

        WASHINGTON — Rep. Steve Chabot fired off a letter Friday urging new House Speaker Denny Hastert to uphold GOP pledges to seek an across-the-board tax cut.

        Mr. Chabot, R-Cincinnati, said he became concerned by reports that the Republican leadership was planning to abandon the idea of a 10 percent across-the-board tax cut because it was too politically risky.

        “There is a sentiment that I'm hearing that some want to back down on tax cuts and just go along with spending the surplus,” Mr. Chabot said.

        In his letter, he said: “Our country's great economic expansion has been fueled by the sweat of millions of American workers. It's time that Washington recognizes that this is their money, not ours.”
