Bob Kerrey on Budget & Economy
Former Democratic Senator (NE)
Why? Clinton wanted to know.
Insisting that his decision was final and unchangeable, Kerrey dumped on the bill. The plan did not solve the entitlement problem, he repeated. It did not shift the country away from consumption to savings. The taxes could kick the country into recession. It wouldn't create jobs. It wouldn't achieve genuine recovery or solve the long-term economic problems. Clinton had a plan, he said, that wouldn't work. Nothing could be offered to change his mind, Kerrey said.
