Negative speeches scaring Americans into believing lies about the economy
WASHINGTON – Just a few days ago, consumer confidence was soaring, at all time highs. Investors, business, and American workers were reaping the benefits of a robust economy: an economy accelerating at its fastest pace in twenty years, an increase in the manufacturing sector, and the creation of over 1 millions jobs, all direct results of the tax cut signed into law by President Bush in 2003.
However, since the beginning of the Democratic National Convention, pessimism about the economy and doom and gloom talk regarding job creation have frightened the American people and instilled in them a fear so terrible that there was visible evidence shown in the Rasmussen Consumer Index. This survey, which measures the economic confidence of American consumers on a daily basis, fell three points as a result of the cynical rhetoric of the Democrats.
Grover G. Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform in Washington, D.C., is ready to respond this unconstructive oratory from Boston. Armed with insider knowledge and facts about the economy, Norquist is the guest for your show that can set the record straight about the economy, tax reform, and other important political issues factoring into the 2004 elections.
Harvard-educated and street-smartened by years as a Washington DC conservative activist, Norquist is your show\’s ultimate guest for a tax or regulation segment. His bio can be found online and you can find more information about his organization, Americans for Tax Reform, at www.atr.org.
