Bosse Outlines Clear, Conservative Message at Granite State Debate

"Stop spending, start drilling, get government out of the way"

(Manchester) Republican Grant Bosse outlined a clear and consistent conservative message at this evening's Granite State Debate, sponsored by WMUR and the New Hampshire Union Leader. Bosse highlighted his unmatched commitment to cutting federal spending, and his leadership in calling for domestic drilling and energy independence.

I'm proud to have delivered the clearest, most consistent, most conservative message throughout this campaign," Bosse said. Asked about how to revive the American economy, Bosse added "before Congress puts its foot on the gas, it has to take its foot off the brake."

Once again, Bosse was the only candidate to provide specific spending cuts, offering "50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending". This ground-breaking initiative will offer $30 billion a year in annual taxpayer savings. For the third consecutive debate, Bosse's opponents combined to offer $0 in taxpayer savings.

"Before we can win back Congress we have to win back the Republican Party," Bosse continued. "Stop spending, start drilling, get government out of the way."

I think Grant represented himself well and I'm glad I tuned in to see. Unfortunately, the question I submitted to WMUR wasn't asked...Grant, what do you know, and where do you stand on the Fair-Tax (H.R. 25)? You really seem like the kind of guy to cut through the "b.s." and run with ideas that "make sense," which is the kind of representation we need in Washington. If you haven't read the book by Boortz/Linder, I'll gladly send you my copy. The Flat-Tax is a good idea, and is still ahead of our current system, but the last our current tax code was "flattened," it has seen ~1,600 revisions. The Fair-Tax will make this country an economic powerhouse again, and we would like your support on the issue. Thanks,

Thanks for the comment and the question. I'm worried about pushing the "Fair Tax". In the current tax climate, we'd end up with both an income tax and a nationwide sales tax, which would hit hardest those who would have the most trouble paying.

Neil Boortz and John Linder have done some great work on consumption taxes versus productively taxes. Grover Norquist outlines an intriguing path in his book "Leave Us Alone". He suggests moving as quickly as possible to a Flat Tax, based on income. Once we have a single income tax rate, we can then replace it all at once with something like the "Fair Tax". Until we get there, pushing for consumption taxes is likely to get us more taxes, rather than less.

That's where I'm coming from. But I welcome anyone looking to blow up the tax code.
