Democrats pounce on Bush economic plan
CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) — As President Bush put the finishing touches on an economic growth package that could cost $600 billion over IO years, Democrats who want his job pledged to scuttle what they characterize as a plan that would help the wealthy without reviving the economy.
The jockeying Saturday came three days before Bush unveils his plan in Chicago and 22 months before the next presidential election. But it previewed the coming political battle over how to spur the economy.
Bush’s growth package probably will include an acceleration of tax cuts Congress approved in 2001; a cut in dividend taxes; tax incentives to prompt more spending by businesses; aid to financially strapped states; and extended unemployment benefits.
South Korea: Compromise closer with North Korea
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -r-South Korea honed a compromise proposal Saturday to resolve the standoff over North Korea’s nuclear program, but Pyongyang warned the situation remained “serious and unpredictable.”
The pace of diplomacy was picking up, with a South Korean diplomat in Russia — an ally of the north, and talks slated in Washington early next week among the United States, the South and Japan. The South Korean proposal was expected to dominate a joint strategy session.
In advance of that regular session to review policy toward the North, the Bush Administration had not budged from its demand that the the communist regime in the North unilaterally abandon its nuclear ambitions before Washington considers a next step.
Details of the Seoul plan were scant, but media reports suggested the proposal would require concessions from both Washington and Pyongyang.
