US Republican presidential candidates dispute over tax plans
Oct.29, Washington: US Republican presidential candidates have disputed over tax plans during the party's third presidential debate in Colorado that featured several angry exchanges. Frontrunners Donald Trump and Ben Carson, with no political experience, were under attack from the start.
Ohio Governor John Kasich condemned their fantasy tax plans. He said, "We can't elect someone who doesn't know how to do the job,"
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said that his plan was based on religious tithing principles, would get rid of deductions and loopholes and constitute a flat rate of about 15 percent that would be sufficient to fund a sharply reduced government.
Trump largely refrained from personal attacks on his rivals, which has been a signature of his campaign, even taking a light touch with Carson.
He said that he could fix the US government's 19-trillion-dollar debt.
Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and son and brother of former presidents, attacked senator Marco Rubio.
