88... separate tax increases along with 42 new user fees Gore proposed in the 2001 budget.

11%... how much the tax burden has increased over the last 8 years.

$500... per child tax credit was never included in previous Clinton/Gore budgets.

50,000,000... taxpayers will not get tax relief under Gore's plan.
