McCain says he stands on his record which is an issue for him since he opposed Bush tax cuts. Goes back to spending and cutting pork.
Rudy asked about commuter tax increase and signing tax pledge. Says he takes one pledge to uphold the constitution but says he has the strongest record of lowering taxes. “Made supply side economics work in city that didn’t understand it.” Very solid answer.
Romney asked about 1/2 billion increases in fees. Says only 260M in fees. This is not a good initial response. He jumps over to future plans to lower taxes. In comparison to Rudy’s answer just before it seems “eh” on his past record.
