"Should We Have An Across-The-Board Tax Cut?"


Dallas - The National Center for Policy Analysis announced today that an episode of the nationally syndicated program DebatesDebates, which was sponsored by the NCPA, will begin airing nationally this week.

The episode: "Should We Have an Across-The-Board Tax Cut?" features an all-star cast debating an issue currently before members of Congress. The affirmative side is led by John C. Goodman President and founder of the National Center for Policy Analysis. Dr. Goodman is joined by Walter Williams, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and Bruce Bartlett, Director of Tax Policy for the NCPA and former Reagan and Bush administration official. Bartlett gained national acclaim for being the first to propose a 15% across-the-board tax cut, which later became the centerpiece of Sen. Bob Dole's presidential bid.

The opposition team is led Robert Kuttner, Co-editor of the magazine The American Prospect. Kuttner is joined in battle by Dean Baker, Senior Research Fellow with the Preamble Center and the Century Foundation and Michael Ettlinger, Tax Policy Director of Citizens for Tax Justice.

A Warren Steibel production, DebatesDebates brings together the world's foremost experts to participate in formal debates on current public policy issues. Warren Steibel is also producer of William F. Buckley's Firing Line.

DebatesDebates airs in over 170 markets nationwide and is available to stations each Wednesday. Check local listings for times and availability in your area. For more information, check out the NCPA's official internet site at www.ncpa.org.
