Southwest Missouri Congressman Roy Blunt expects President Bush to turn his attention to the economy now that the war with Iraq is entering a new phase. Blunt’s disappointed with how the Senate trimmed the House version of the president’s tax cut package. The House approved a $550-Billion package. The Senate approved one totalling $350-Billion. Blunt, meeting with the media at the State Capitol, sees room for compromise, especially since Bush can now give more attention to domestic matters. A portion of the President’s plan calls for the elimination of taxes on stock dividends. The Senate has rejected it, but Blunt says the President might be able to change a few minds.
