Modest tax cuts will help the middle class

Gore has called for middle-class tax cuts for education and retirement, and higher earning cap for receiving earned income tax credit, all costing $250 billion to $300 billion. He is opposed to the Republican plan for $792 billion in wide-ranging cuts.

Tax credit for long-term care

With the number of elderly Americans set to double by 2030, long-term care is perhaps the greatest unmet health care challenge facing today’s families. Gore is fighting for the administration’s proposed long-term care tax credit for the disabled and their caregivers.

“Reinvention” cuts taxes while improving services

[“Reinventing Government” means] doing more with less. In the 70’s and 80’s, we saw a growing international frustration with rising tax rates -- and the fact that they were paying not for better services, but for more bureaucracy and inefficiency. We found that only through reinvention could we cut taxes, balance the budget, and improve services all at the same time.
