Presidential candidates Al Gore and George W. Bush have proposed dueling income tax cuts in their battle to attract voters. Economists say the candidates are depending on optimistic predictions about the U.S. economy that might or might not be accurate. Two experts join Diane to talk about what's in the two proposals, how each fits into the candidate's overall vision for the country's future, and what message each plan sends about how government should serve the American people.
