Orange County super Republican Tom Fuentes invited the political power base to breakfast at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort this week to welcome the grandson of late President Richard M. Nixon.
In Newport Beach on business, Christopher Nixon Cox, 30, addressed the breakfast conference expressing his opinions on the state of the nation and the direction of the Obama administration. “Higher taxes hit the poorest people hardest,” said the young attorney who is in private practice in New York City and is also involved in raising equity for major capital investment. “We need projects that make sense for Americans,” he added, stating, “The best way to create jobs is to cut the capital gains tax.” Cox continued, “How about a 50% tax credit on payroll taxes for businesses? That would stimulate economic growth.”....
I'm told that Al Tello, Glenn Roquemore and David Robinson (of the IVC Foundation Board) were also in attendance.
Remember when Fuentes suggested that the "Great Park" be named the "Richard E. Nixon" Park?
