The National Taxpayers Union just tallied up all the campaign promises made so far by the presidential candidates. It probably won't surprise Giuliani supporters, but their guy was one of only two candidates actually promising to CUT government spending, instead of increasing it. Here are the numbers:

Mike Huckabee: increase spending by $54.2 billion
Mitt Romney: increase spending by $19.5 billion
John McCain: increase spending by $6.9 billion

Rudy Giuliani: cut spending by $1.4 billion
Ron Paul: cut spending by $150.1 billion

I think they underestimate Ron Paul's budget axe, but the point remains: if you liked Giuliani because of his fiscal policies, you will love Ron Paul.
