The article offers the author's insights on former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, who helped persuade the U.S. Congress to pass George W. Bush's 2001 tax cuts. She says that Greenspan is making amends for helping the 2001 tax cuts approval by stating that lawmakers should let the expiration of tax reduction at the end of 2010. She adds that the beliefs of Republican leaders on deficit reductions should be taken as a warning by the people of what to expect from a Republican leader.
