President Bush will stop in Omaha this afternoon as part of his campaign to convince Congress to enact his tax cut package. Bush will land in Omaha at about 3:30, then meet privately with some local residents to tell them how much their tax bills would be reduced by his proposed tax cuts. Then, Bush will speak to invited guests and workers at Airlite Plastics Company in Omaha. The firm’s managers told workers they’re free to see the President if they either makeup their work on Saturday or take vacation time. The President’s visit is timed to pressure Republicans in the Senate to support a larger tax cut than what has been crafted by the Senate Finance Committee, the panel Iowa Senator Charles Grassley leads.
