Rudy Giuliani Boooed in Jacksonville for Opposition to FairTax.

Rudy Giuliani was booed in Jacksonville, Fla., when he tried to explain why he opposes the FairTax. Giuliani says “Our economy is dependent upon the way our tax system operates.”
Is that so, you mean to tell me that our economy is dependent on a current tax system that cost businesses 300 billion a year. Actually, if you think about it, it costs you, the consumer that much a year. The expense gets passed on to you, and taking out of your potential raises to cover the cost of the current system.

The FairTax system that would make the U.S. the world's number one tax haven; a tax system that would completely un-tax the poor; a tax system that would have every major business in the world looking for a way to locate operations in the United States; such a tax system would be bad for our economy? By the end of the town hall meeting Giuliani was changing his tune and said he “had to study it some more” Gee, you think.
