Jerry Brown - Meg Whitman debate: Tangling over taxes
The first direct confrontation of the debate between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman came over taxes.
Whitman touted her plan to cut capital gains taxes.
“It’s a tax on jobs, it’s a tax on job creators and it’s a tax on investments,” she said.
But then Brown turned to Whitman and asked: “How much money will you save” under such a plan?
Whitman didn’t give a specific answer, but turned the tables on Brown, saying her plan would create jobs and, “You have been part of the war on jobs ... for 40 years.”
