The guests talked about tax policy, focusing on whether or not recent tax cuts should be made permanent. Mr. Hassett argued that the tax cuts should be maintained in order to protect the economy, and deficits should be eliminated through spending cuts. Mr. Sawicky said that spending cuts could not cover the deficit, and that the tax cuts should be greatly reduced to prevent increasing the national debt. The guests responded to audience telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail. close
