Republican presidential candidate and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal stated his tax plan is “different in three distinct ways from other Republican plans” and offered to read Hillary Clinton’s book once she watches the Planned Parenthood videos released by the Center for Medical Progress on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
Jindal said, “I think everybody should pay something. The reality is, too many Americans now think money just grows on trees. We’ve got this ridiculous, out of control government spending, $18 trillion of debt. I think earned success is so much better than unearned success. Even 2%, that may be the most important 2% of my entire tax plan. I think everybody should pay at least something towards the government.”
Jindal added, “my plan’s different in three distinct ways from other Republican plans. We all have lower rates and do other things. One, as we’ve noted, everybody pays something. Secondly, we zero out the corporate tax rate to create more jobs and income in America, not overseas. But, third, Neil, I explicitly say we’re reducing government revenue, and we’re proud of that. We need to shrink the size of government. We cut government revenue 22% over ten years.”
Jindal also commented on Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending him, along with other GOP presidential candidates her book. He said he would read Clinton’s book once she watches the Planned Parenthood videos.
