During the interview, Mr. Turk explains why he feels the economy is stronger than some pundits claim. He also discusses why he supports President Bushs newly announced "tax rebate" plan to stimulate the economy, saying "when you give the folks their money back, the economy takes off". Turk also talks about his support for continuing the war in Iraq.
