Kimberley Strassel talked about the economic policies of the current remaining presidential candidates. She talked about campaign strategies and argued that Republican candidates have not done enough to credit the good economy to previous tax cuts or explain the consequences to taxes and the economy of Democratic proposals on current microeconomic issues such as health care. She contrasted the positions of Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama with the positions of Senator McCain on issues such as taxes, spending, earmarks, and the role and size of government. Ms. Strassel reponded to questions from members of the audience.
