Here's a possible look into the future as Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards proposes a return to the nineties.
SAN DIEGO -- Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said yesterday raising taxes for higher-income families back to their levels under the Clinton administration is a floor, not a ceiling, and he would consider even higher tax increases.
"What I believe is the starting place is to go back to the Clinton levels," Mr. Edwards told reporters after addressing the 2,000 delegates to California's state Democratic Party convention.
But Mr. Edwards said (the budget deficit) that's not his top priority .
"I believe it is more important to bring about the transformation," he said, pointing to his universal health care plan, achieving independence from foreign energy and reducing global warming emissions. "Some people believe it's more important to push those things off and reduce the deficit -- the deficit's the priority."
