Bush Stumps for Talent in Springfield

By M. Shelton, KWMU

Springfield, MO – President Bush focused on the economy as he campaigned for Republican Jim Talent in Springfield, Missouri, today.
Bush acknowledged the economy is just "bumping along," but he says it will get stronger - if his tax cuts are made permanent. Also, he says a Republican-controlled Senate would pave the way for other tax reforms, like doing away with the death tax on farms and small businesses.

A spokesman for incumbent Democratic Senator Jean Carnahan says she supports an immediate repeal of the death tax on family-owned farms and small businesses.
