No Beer Tax!!
Today New York Governor George Pataki became the first presidential candidate to open an office. He hopes that the office will become a meeting place for grassroots operations and help elect GOP candidates. Governor Pataki also stressed his accomplishments as governor of the Empire State. He focused on reducing the number of people on welfare, lowering taxes and reducing crime. Out of the 80 people there, about 25 were College Republicans. When Governor Pataki mentioned that he eliminated the beer tax in New York, the CRs started an uproar and one student said, "I can get behind that!" Pataki also said, "One of the things that most troubles me about Democrats is that you hear all the time that they care about people. Nothing could be further from the truth." The crowd also reacted favorably when the Governor said that the reason we were attacked on 9/11 was because of everything that we do right: individual freedom, freedom of assembly and religion.
