"Lower Deficit Sparks Debate Over Tax Cuts' Role" [Business, Oct. 17] quoted Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) as saying the administration's fiscal policies "have not benefited most Americans."

That is flatly untrue. Across the country, all income groups have benefited from tax cuts, with the largest percentage cut going to the middle class. In fact, the senator's own constituents in North Dakota have had almost 20 percent knocked off their tax bills since 2000. I think most people find having more money in their pocket, not Uncle Sam's, beneficial.
