Rudolph Giuliani: "People can make decisions about their money"

Giuliani Touts His Low-Tax Stance in NH

By GLEN JOHNSON – 3 hours ago

STRATHAM, N.H. (AP) — Republican Rudy Giuliani is trying to make up for lost time in New Hampshire by cutting to the chase with low-tax talk likely to resonate in a state whose lack of income tax speaks to the political leanings of its GOP primary voters.

The former New York mayor, wrapping up his second consecutive weekend in an early presidential primary state where he only recently decided to compete, said Sunday the leading Democratic contenders want to raise taxes by up to 30 percent, and their much-discussed hike in capital gains levies could send business investment overseas.
"If you tax too much in the United States, they go to Bermuda or Ireland or eastern Europe or India or China or someplace else," Giuliani told about 100 people attending at house party on the state's vote-rich Seacoast. "The businesses can go there with the jobs and the money can go there as part of the investment."
