Rudy Promises to Behave

Posted: Oct 17, 2007 3:25 PM
From a Club for Growth press release:

Today, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made news at the Club for Growth 2007 Fall Conference when he unambiguously ruled out an increase in Social Security taxes and declared his previous support for McCain-Feingold a “mistake.”

While Giuliani has frequently stated his general opposition to taxes, he has never declared his opposition to raising Social Security taxes as unabashedly as he did today.  Nor has Giuliani ever addressed his previous support for McCain-Feingold in such a candid manner.  Today, Giuliani said the anti-free speech legislation needed to be reworked and supported removing limits on political contributions while increasing disclosure requirements.
