Say It Ain't So, Wes

Wes Clark has been, in my opinion, the most palatable alternative to Dean among the Democratic candidates. However, yesterday he announced $30b tax cut plan. Is this man not aware of the $500b budget deficit we're running? Has it become necessary for every person who runs for office to announce a tax cut plan? Sure, he has some plans to pay for this, but as far as I'm concerned there can be no tax cuts until the deficit is covered and principal is being paid off on the national debt. Until that time comes I don't even want to hear the words "tax cut" pass a candidate's lips. I'm not giving up on Clark, but this is definitely a strike against him.
