I Agree With Giuliani
Rudy Giuliani is booed in Jacksonville. For not supporting abolishing the federal income tax.
Several dozen people wearing white fair tax T-shirts and hats and carrying signs briefly jeered when Giuliani, in response to a question, said he would not be in favor of the fair tax system.
"I have to study it some more," the former New York City mayor said. "I don't think a fair tax is realistic change for America. Our economy is dependent upon the way our tax system operates."
"Fair tax" proposals would abolish federal income taxes and other federal taxes and replace them with a national sales tax.
This national sales tax is a horrible idea supoported by conservatives and Democrat Mike Gravel. I have a hard time believing a national sales tax pitch will fly with voters after seeing how it crashed and burned in Florida. This maybe one of the few times when I actually agree with Giuliani. Mark the day on your calendar.
