Manchester, NH - Gov. Jon Huntsman released the following statement responding to Gov. Rick Perry's tax plan:
"Unlike my plan to clean out the tax code entirely, Governor Perry takes the easy way out by leaving in place a broken system. Because his plan is optional it will maintain our outdated system of deductions and credits. I have offered a pro-growth plan that will actually reform our tax code for the 21st Century by eliminating loopholes, deductions, and corporate welfare entirely."
