Giuliani Supports Increase In Space Program

A strong NASA and a revitalized space program will be a priority for a Giuliani Administration from day one,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani said he would try to narrow and possibly even eliminate the four- to five-year gap in human launchings from Cape Canaveral that is expected once NASA’s space shuttles are retired in 2010. The shuttle replacements, intended as eventual moonships, are not expected to fly with astronauts until at least 2014 or 2015.

Giuliani Wants National Catastrophe Fund

Giuliani touted his plan for a national catastrophe fund. “This is the backbone of emergency response … whether it’s to a terrorist attack or a national disaster,” Giuliani said. “Washington can’t get here fast enough if the trees are falling, the houses are burning and the people are fleeing.”

He also wants to strengthen the nation’s military by increasing the size of the Army by at least 10 combat brigades; increasing the size of the Marines to at least 200,000; and increasing the number of Navy ships to at least 300.

Giuliani’s Tax Plan

Giuliani proposes that Americans could file an optional, 11-line, one-page Fair and Simple Tax (FAST) form. They would enjoy mortgage-interest, charity, and state/local tax deductions, a $3,500 personal exemption, a $1,000-per-child credit, and a new health-insurance exclusion of $15,000 for families and $7,500 for individuals.

More dramatic, today’s six brackets, reaching 35 percent, would become three: 10, 15 and 30 percent. A family of four earning $80,000 would save $2,207 or 24 percent in taxes. At $120,000, they would save $7,014, or 36 percent.

Giuliani would index the alternative minimum tax to inflation, and eventually scrap it. He would bury the death tax. Corporate taxes, higher only in Japan, would fall from 35 to 25 percent. Capital-gains and dividend taxes would tumble from 15 to 10 percent. President Bush’s tax reductions would become permanent.
