Now -- -- the race for the White House the US economy taking center stage of course early in this presidential race.
Here's John McCain today taking a swing at -- Obama's economic policies before a crowd of small business owners watching us.
Under senator Obama's tax plan.
Americans -- every background would see their taxes rise seniors parents small business owners.
And just about every one who has even a modest investment in the market.
I will meanwhile Barack Obama argues that McCain's policies are no different than those of President Bush.
He blames those policies for the slumping economy take -- look.
All right joining me right now is seventeen supporter and former CEO of Hewlett-Packard's Carly Fiorina Carly welcome back intact GO.
Nice to see Martha -- -- little bit about you know obviously they're gone back and forth and -- that -- Obama has said that John McCain's tax cut plan.
Is outrageous and it would cost the country five point seven billion dollars over the next ten years.
-- you know.
What what what are people to make of office.
Well first ball.
Having looked at John McCain's economic plans in his budget very carefully I can tell you that John McCain will balance the budget by the end of his first term in 2013.
While at the same time getting our economy growing and cutting the taxes that he's proposing to cut on the other hand.
Spending measures would cost us over a trillion dollars in five years and Senator Obama last night admitted.
That he is tax hikes were going to harm the economy and said that he would perhaps delay.
Those tax increases if the economy didn't improve.
So I think what you have here is Barack Obama without a great deal of understanding in the economy going back to the same old tax and spend.
Of the liberal democratic past he reminds me a bit of Jimmy Carter or Herbert Hoover even -- I.
All of that he of course -- would say that that's not the case at all that they what they wanted to put money back in people's pockets and given tax cuts and certainly when people hear that.
That's -- pretty good Carly.
-- but he's not propose one single tax cut in fact every program he's proposed this a tax increase whether it's an increase in payroll taxes.
An increase in capital gains and dividend taxes and increase in Social Security taxes or an increase on small business owners.
Everything he's proposed is a tax increase not a tax cut on the other hand.
John McCain has been very explicit about the taxes he will cut.
Whether those are making it easier for small businesses to form and grow keeping human capital gains tax at its current rate of fifteen.
And then there's -- rock climbing on Saturday it would go up to 28% which is a very -- exactly a very big increase in that particular -- it you know what is and -- -- and -- -- -- hundred million Americans that what it is gonna continue to -- -- John McCain on this -- -- a statement that he made -- -- -- is saying that you know the economy wasn't his strong -- Something to that -- fact I you know how to -- override that -- -- to -- -- -- -- we'll track people's -- that had people bring it -- today.
Yeah well he did say -- One time.
No question may be twice it was quite a while ago I'm a business woman who's known him for eight years I can tell you he understands the economy very well.
And I guess -- set -- fix it fixating on one.
A humble statement.
I would ask people to look at these two plans and listen to these two leaders talk about these two plants.
Hopefully Barack Obama will accept senator McCain's challenge to meet at a town halls of the American people can hear them talk about these plans.
But what you have on the one hand is Barack Obama promising to raise every tax in the book.
And what you have on the other hand is a plan by John McCain to reform government to bring growth back to the American economy.
And to cut those taxes they get in the way in particular -- families and small this -- You speak very forcefully on the economy Kyle a lot of people think that he needs somebody just like -- as a vice presidential candidates help madness Friday it's.
Yes or no are you are you on that -- you wanna be that and that well you know what.
John McCain will have lots of highly qualified people that he confused on Libya's vice president right now I'm just honored to be able to help in some small way to elect -- president united -- -- asked would you sheriff.
Well anyone would be honored to serve under a president McCain I Carly Fiorina thanks a pleasure as always good to see it like.
