Show the people the money http://econ4dean.typepad.com/econ4dean/2003/10/repeal_all_the_.html
Maybe this is politically naive, but maybe there's a way to fight the Bush forces on this head on instead of taking the politically expedient course. Maybe Dean can say forget about the family in Rhode Island who happened to be lucky enough to get $1500 out of the Bush tax cut...they are a rarity...if you want to know how much YOU got out of the Bush tax cut go to our website (or some nonpartisan website) and plug in YOUR numbers. Then plug in your city and state see how much your state and local income taxes, sales taxes, vehicle fees, property taxes, school tuition fees etc went up. Dean can say I could have taken the easy way out like the other Washington politicians who I beat in the primaries, but we have to have the courage to face the challenges.
Any web designers out there? If the campaign doesn't do this, we should. We can. Please leave your contact info in comments if you can help with the HTML/etc side of this, I am sure econ4dean wil provide the economic details.
Let's DO this!

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
