The real Huckabee
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2008, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I am disappointed in the tactics and statements of almost all the presidential candidates, both Democrats and Republicans. My grandmother used to say that you can tell just as big a lie with a half-truth and sometimes a bigger one.

Take the half-truths said about Mike Huckabee and taxes. I lived in Arkansas when he was the governor. He did away with the marriage tax penalty and the capital gains tax on the sale homes. He doubled Arkansas' standard deduction and the child care tax credit. He slashed the capital gains tax for both individuals and businesses.

In 2001, Mike took a lot of flak for refusing to raise taxes even with a looming budget shortfall. In response, he formed the "Tax Me More Fund" for people who felt that the government was not taking enough from their paychecks.

I like Mike and encourage everyone to reject half-truths and accept the real Mike Huckabee.
