President George W. Bush talked tax cuts as he visited Missouri on the first leg of a 2-day, 3-state tour to promote his $1-point-6-trillion tax cutting proposal. The President spoke at a small business in Kansas City. While he pushed for U.S. Senate passage of his tax cut proposal, he also discussed the death tax and the marriage penalty, saying they must be eliminated. Bush left Missouri to travel to Montana where he talked to farmers about how his tax cut idea would benefit them. The President’s tax cut proposal has been approved by the House of Representatives, but has yet to pass the Senate.
