Perry to Propose Flat Tax Next Week

Rick Perry will unveil a sweeping economic plan next Tuesday in South Carolina that will be based on wiping away the current tax code and replacing it with a flat tax, he said here Wednesday.

Speaking before the Western Republican Leadership Conference at the Venetian resort, Perry kept up the fire he directed at Mitt Romney the night before in CNN’s GOP debate and laid out in more stark terms how he is to Romney’s right on economic issues. His remarks were at times punchy and a reminder that Perry might be better positioned to capture the anti-establishment GOP wing, given the rigid economic stances it has embraced in recent months.
