JOIE CHEN, CNN ANCHOR: Now we move up to Washington and Capitol Hill today --- Vice President Cheney carrying the torch for President Bush, talking up his tax plan with Republican leaders at a policy luncheon.
Let's hear his comments.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
DICK CHENEY, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: ... under the right circumstances, he can support such legislation.
But, again, there's a lot of work to be done, and I would not expect that we'll have just one issue at a time. There'll be a lot of issues on our platter, and I'm sure that's some of them.
Thank you all very much.
CHEN: Just getting the end of comments there by Vice President Cheney as he spoke to reporters. He'd just come out of a luncheon with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill, talking up the plans -- the tax plans -- that have been espoused by the president, Mr. Bush.
Mr. Bush, of course, is also making a number of stops and through the week, talking up his tax plan. Earlier in the day, we saw that he was at a small business, a toy store in McLean, Virginia, talking up the plan and how it might affect consumers and consumer debt as well as small businesses.
Vice President Cheney doing the same thing, talking up the plan, as he spoke to leaders on Capitol Hill today.
