HAS STEVE LEFT THE ROOM YET?:

Giuliani on Flat Tax: Just Kidding (Jason Horowitz, NY Observer Politicker)

Rudy Giuliani, fresh off winning the endorsement of Steve Forbes, now says he was just kidding when he said he thought the flat tax was a good idea.

"I didn't favor it, I said something academic," Giuliani said at a press conference in Florida on Saturday, in response to a reporter asking him why he had switched from opposing a flat tax to favoring it.


At least no one would have to pretend that the Mayor mislead them when he betrayed every conservative principle once elected.

El Caudillo is a good deal if he has the best chance to win, otherwise fugeddaboutid.

As good an idea as flat tax or Fair Tax might be, the public mistakenly believe that the present system benefits them as the expense of their neighbors. I have met people paying AMT who think the income tax benefits "working class" people such as themselves.
