It may be hard to win in New York when you trot out voodoo economics as the solution our problems. Do lower tax rates on the wealthiest really trickle down and create jobs? It would seem the last thirty years of economic history would answer a resounding no. Lower tax rates on the wealthy allow them to buy a third house, upgrade the Benz to a Bentley and the Manet to a Monet.
Also, a little disappointing that he punts on the Medicare question. I have a lot more respect for someone like Paul Ryan (and future of capitalism) who have the guts to call for the elimination of medicare.
