Sharpton in Buffalo, Criticizes Tax Cut Plan

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – Civil rights activist and presidential aspirant the Reverend Al Sharpton is critical of the Bush administration's tax cut proposal.

He was in Buffalo Sunday, speaking as a guest pastor at morning services at the True Bethel Baptist Church.

Sharpton said his priorities, if elected, would be to spend more money for health care and education.

Sharpton also questioned the government's plan to create a health care program for the children of Iraq, when there are those in need in Buffalo and elsewhere in the US.

Sharpton said he believes his chances of gaining the Democratic presidential nomination next year are "great."
