No Specifics From Perry on How Much Revenue Would Drop Under His Plan

Rick Perry could not give a specific number of how much revenue would drop if his tax plan was implemented in an interview last night.

“Well, I don’t really worry about what the Feds are going to lose,” he told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in a response to a question about what federal revenue would be under his plan. “What I’m worried about is getting people back to work in this country.”

Noting that the nation had a “spending problem,” Perry pivoted to the goal of his tax plan. “We know what happens when job creators get to keep more of their money, they have the confidence to go out and spend that money to create jobs that in turn create wealth,” he said.
