Steve Forbes, campaigning for Rick Perry, attacks Romney’s capital gains tax policy
Businessman Steve Forbes, stumping for Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry today, attacked Mitt Romney for his policies on taxes and health care. “His capital gains (tax policy) is almost weaker than (President) Obama’s because he fears he’ll be called a friend of the rich,” Forbes said. “Well, get over it, governor. You’re going to be portrayed as a friend of the rich no matter what you do.” Fox News reported that when Forbes ran for president in 1996, his net worth was estimated at $430 million. Romney’s net worth is estimated at between $190 million and $250 million.
