Government's Role: Two Competing Visions

June 10, 2003

The current tax cut debate is just part of a larger picture of two very different visions of what government should do, and for whom. Rarely do you see these visions so clearly delineated as in two Washington Post op-ed pieces published June 9, 2003. In "Step by Step Tax Reform," conservative opinion leader Grover Norquist says conservatives can count on being in power in Washington long enough to realize an agenda of yearly tax cuts, a tax code that rewards wealth, and limited government.
