Candidates are asked if they think the FairTax is a good idea or a bad idea.
Giuliani: Went off on a tangent about his WorkFare program in NYC. Never answered.
Thompson: Likes certain elements of the FairTax. Fears that we wouldn't get rid of the Income Tax, so that we would end up with both Consumption and Income Taxes. Wants a flatter Income Tax. Said any plan must be revenue-neutral. My question would be Why??? Why not reduce spending?
