Jeb Bush's tax plan to kick the economy into a 4 percent growth rate is getting raves from media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who tweeted Thursday the former Florida governor's presidential campaign rivals should "adopt or debate."

"Jeb Bush's tax proposals substantive and attractive to all," the founder and head of global media conglomerate News Corporation gushed on Twitter.

"Others note and adopt or debate. Growth only answer to jobs, stronger America."

The endorsement came a day after Murdoch praised Bush's comprehensive tax plan, which the GOP presidential contender first unveiled in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.


In his plan, Bush emphasizes ending income tax liability for millions of low-income households, taxing carried interest as ordinary income and letting businesses write off expenses immediately, which could net a sizable tax cut for individuals and businesses.

Murdoch took to Twitter earlier in the week to predict that Vice President Joe Biden would become the Democratic presidential nominee, and saying he'd be hard to beat.


Bush is running a distant third in the Republican field of presidential candidates, with 8.3 percent of support in an average of national polls, behind Donald Trump's commanding 29.8 percent and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson's 16 percent, according to Real Clear Politics.
