The facts on George W. Bush's $1.6 trillion tax cut promise. Almost

Pay down the nation's debt.
Protect Social Security and Medicare.
A $10,000 a year tax deduction for college tuition.

|Background: The Gore campaign released three ads on the same day, all designed to "highlight Gore's plans to strengthen families and ensure that current surpluses are used to enrich, not just the few, but all families." In case the viewer doesn't catch the point the first time, the announcer twice states the claim that "almost half goes to the richest one percent."|
