Subject: Al Gore... By the Numbers
Dear Fred Hoot,
While Al Gore has a habit of exaggerating his record, these numbers tell us the real truth about his record on education, healthcare and taxes:
AL GORE'S EDUCATION PLANS...
$10,000... tax deduction that Al Gore says will be received by "all students who want to go to college".
$800... tax deduction is the reality.
0... students working their way through college getting a tax credit because they do not pay enough in income taxes.
30,000,000... low-income households get no benefit on Gore's education plan.
0... families making over $20,000 get a benefit.
5,000,000... upper income families are ineligible.
0... deductions or credits for room, board, books, supplies, and travel.
1... education plan that is almost identical to the one that failed in the Clinton White House.
AL GORE'S PROGRAM ON HEALTHCARE:
$600... access fee per year to obtain prescription drug coverage under the Gore plan.
412... new regulatory mandates created by the Gore Medicare plan.
182... new regulations dealing with prescription drugs alone.
64.5... the age you are when you have your one and only opportunity to buy into a government HMO.
8... year wait for Gore's plan to be implemented.
2... times the price of Bush's plan to create more government bureaucrats
THE VICE PRESIDENT ON TAXES:
88... separate tax increases along with 42 new user fees Gore proposed in the 2001 budget.
11%... how much the tax burden has increased over the last 8 years.
$500... per child tax credit was never included in previous Clinton/Gore budgets.
50,000,000... taxpayers will not get tax relief under Gore's plan.
$1,400... couples will pay in taxes because Gore opposed the Marriage Penalty tax cut.
4.3 cents... tax increase on a gallon of gas because of Gore's tie-breaking vote.
THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBERS:
17... days until the election.
