CRUI$E.COM INTERNET PRIQNG - TRADITONAl SERVICE 800-517-9771 T TAX CUT Republicans push $1.35 trillion deal Bush says he's convinced program can be financed By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — House and Senate Republicans tentatively agreed Tuesday to push for ah 11-year, $1.35 trillion tax cut. President Bush cheered the compromise as "a great day for the American people and the American taxpayer." The deal would give Bush most of the tax reduction he wants and resolve one of the two outstanding issues blocking completion of a 2002 budget. It also reflects the failure of the White House and Republican leaders to persuade Senate moderates to move closer to the $1.6 trillion, 10- year tax reduction that had been the pillar of Bush's economic program since his presidential campaign. Bush, appearing in the White House Rose Garden, said the tax cut will be paid for and spending will be held to a "reasonable level." "I'm absolutely convinced we'll be able to fund the tax cuts," Bush said. "I suspect I am going to have to remain diligent over the next year to keep the spenders in check." He congratulated Democratic and Republican lawmakers who crafted a compromise, saying their cooperation was a positive harbinger for other legislative issues. "You all deserve, great credit," Bush said. "You have proved we can work together to do what's right for the American people." Under the agreement, taxes would be cut by $1.25 trillion between 2002 and 2011 — $350 billion less than Bush had insisted on for more than a year. There would also be a $100 billion tax cut aimed at stimulating the economy that would be enacted this year but would cover 2001 and 2002. Details of the agreement were disclosed by GOP aides and lawmakers speaking on condition of anonymity The pact underlines the clout moderates of both parties can wield in a Senate divided 50-50 between the two parties. The more conservative House had approved Bush's fuU $1.6 trillion 10-year figure, and its leaders have been insisting that they would like to see an even deeper tax reduction.
